Overview

This title offers clear definitions of Gurdjieff's teaching terms, placing him within the political, geographical and cultural context of his time. Entries look at diverse aspects of his work, including: possible sources in religious, theosophical, occult, esoteric and literary traditions; the integral relationships between different aspects of the teaching; its internal contradictions and subversive aspects; the derivation of Gurdjieff's cosmological laws and Ennegram; and the receptive form of "new work" teaching introduced by Jeanne de Salzmann. An accessible and cross-referenced A-Z guidebook, this is a useful companion for both the newcomer and those more versed in Gurdjieff's thought and teachings.
