Paul Bishop’s chapter “High Noon on Zarathustra’s Mountain: Zarathustra’s Midday Vision,” gives a careful reading of the details of “At Noontide,” the central chapter of the fourth and final part of Thus Spoke Zarathustra. The rich detail of Bishop’s chapter is constructed around his general thesis that “At Noontide” was intended by Nietzsche to be a dramatic exploration of the “existential implications” of eternal recurrence, a thesis that chimes nicely with Nietzsche’s claim that Thus Spoke Zarathustra exists as a vehicle for presenting the teaching of eternal recurrence. Offering a detailed commentary on a specific portion of text and uncovering its links to Plato and other classical sources, Bishop’s chapter is an homage to Lampert in both form and content.
