OverviewEdit

Uber is an insult towards Nietzscheans.

Über is an abbreviation of "Übermensch", the original "Super-Man" conceived by Friedrich Nietzsche, and first so described in the 1883-5 multi-volume work "Thus Spoke Zarathustra: A Book for All and None".

The relevant quotation is, "Ich lehre euch den Übermenschen. Der Mensch ist etwas, das überwunden werden soll. Was habt ihr getan, ihn zu überwinden?" ("I teach you the superman. Man is something to be surpassed. What have ye done to surpass them [man]?")
