Abstract

How are we to live our lives genuinely in an affirmation of both good and evil aspects of effulgent life in all its inevitability? This paper explores Nietzsche’s thought of eternal recurrence in light of an imagery of “halcyon” in Thus Spoke Zarathustra and attempts to shed light on the Nietzschean art of living life in the excesses of reason, language and nihilism.
