Description

Nietzsche / Zarathustra, the prophet of the new man, or rather of the pagan hero rediscovered by force of his cleverness and will, nearing fifty, begins to feel the fragility of himself and of the ideal he has preached for longtime. Trying to escape signs and premonitions of death, he sets off for a high and far mountain, where he hopes to recover himself and the world in its original integrity. Along this pilgrimage he goes through many unexpected experiences: he meets disciples he didn't know, Buddhist monks, God's seekers, including an old hermit. Meanwhile, in many ways, he finds his faith in a mankind finally master of its own destiny proved wrong, and in his suffering and that of his friends he recovers the spiritual childhood, which, through a outwardly absurd death, will take him back to the one and true God.show more

About Emilio Fermi

Emilio Fermi was born in San Pietro, Cerro (Piacenza) in 1936. He taught literature for many years, both in Italy and in other counties. He began by writing novels, short stories, poems and plays on philosophical and religious themes, and has written many over the years, including: Elia, il faro e la cometa (first edition entitled Escaton), Giona profeta controvoglia (English edition: Jonah the reluctant Prophet), Nicodemo (English edition: Nicodemus) and Cosi tacque Zarathustra (English edition: And finally Zarathustra fell silent). Subsequently he concentrated mainly on writing texts for critical reflection, from a somewhat sui generis re-reading of the Gospel of Matthew (Venuta Sera), to essays on biblical topics, aesthetics and the philosophy of history and pedagogy, all collected in the work Il Logos di Dio, and his most recent works: one on the relationship between science and faith (Le dieci giornate) and one on the relationship between Christianity and politics (Costantino, i cristiani e la politica), written on the 17th centenary of the Edict of Constantine (313-2013). He has set up a website www.escaton.it for direct dialogue with his readers (Italian, French, English,show more
