Why Nietzsche Did Not Want Followers
According to one of Nietzsche’s most repeated aphorisms: ‘one repays a teacher badly if one always remains nothing but a pupil’. Nietzsche has his Zarathustra says this after he exhorts his disciples to leave him: ‘Now I go alone, my disciples. You too go now, alone. Thus I want it. Verily, I counsel you: go away from me and resist Zarathustra! And even better: be ashamed of him! Perhaps he deceived you’.
