Lawrence Hatab on Nietzsche's Eternal Recurrence

August 9, 2009

We hear a clip from the 2007 film "When Nietzsche Wept" which introduces the concept of "eternal recurrence." That's the subject of Lawrence Hatab's book "Nietzsche's Life Sentence: Coming to Terms with Eternal Recurrence." Hatab tells Steve Paulson that the philosopher spells out his notion of a constantly self-renewing universe in "Thus Spoke Zarathustra."
