Zarathustra is a hermit who lives in the mountains, isolated, who one day decides to descend and share his knowledge and wisdom with the people. Through the figure of him, the book tells us a series of stories with facts and reflections of the prophet Zarathustra.

One of the most important concepts in the book is the idea of "Superman", a guide to avoid falling into false beliefs and create new values. The superman is the replacement of God as the end to which human effort should be directed. It is necessary to overcome the old and think and create something new.
