Psychological Commentaries on the Teaching of Gurdjieff and Ouspensky, Volume 3

Front Cover
Weiser Books, Aug 1, 1996 - Philosophy - 454 pages
When Maurice Nicholl was studying in Zurich, he met Jung, and Ouspensky. He went on to study with Gurdjieff, and from 1931 to his death in 1953, he began at Ouspensky's request, a programme of work devoted to passing on the ideas he had received. Reissued in hard cover, these five unedited commentaries are taken from the weekly lectures and talks Nicoll gave to his students in England and which were recorded verbatim; the sixth volume is an index produced by the Gurdjieff society Washington DC. These differ from Nicholl's more polished works - they are more concerned with directly applying certain deep ideas to daily life.

I will not recommend this book to anyone who is not familiar with what it is about. This is not foundational. It requires not one, but a set of pre-requisites from various streams. It took me 5 months to complete this mammoth! *Review coming soon* Read full review
