4 "Eternal recurrence": an intellectual concept in the works of Friedrich Nietzsche, according to which accepting the thought that all events repeat themselves ad infinitum forms the basis of the highest affirmation of life. The interpretation of this thought, which is central especially to Nietzsche's Thus Spoke Zarathustra, is widely debated problem in the philosophical reception of Nietzsche.
