About The Superman
The three essays collected in this book were originally published in the monthly review Arya between April and August 1915. In the title essay Sri Aurobindo examines the ideal of the superman and defines it as a "certain divine and harmonious absolute of all that is essential in man". The other essays are an exploration of the concepts of fate and free-will and their impact on a man's temperament and inner being, and a meditation on the way to achieve "the delight of works" through self-knowledge and self-offering.
