Overview

An adventure story replete with ancient texts, hidden monasteries, occult orders and lost civilizations, "Meetings With Remarkable Men" is Georgi Gurdjieff's account of his early life, of his travels and explorations in the Caucasus and Central Asia, and of the strange and mysterious individuals he met in those wild and mostly unexplored territories.
But the book is far more than a simple tale of derring-do. Gurdjieff uses each of the remarkable characters he meets to illustrate at least one major point in his spiritual teachings - a philosophy that blossomed with his founding of the 'Institute for the Harmonious Development of Man', and which continues in one form or another to this day.
"Meetings With Remarkable Men" has been a classic since its first publication in English in 1963, essential reading for those wishing to understand Gurdjieff's complex character and his deep insights into the spiritual development of humanity.

    A Fascinating telling of impressions

    Gurdjieff's book is thoroughly well written. not just a showcase for his ideas, which however do stand on their own. I think he's one of the few mystics that i actually identify with, 'cause he also tells his own faults as much as his wisdom, it isn't just how 'he's got all the answers' so then it's not like some books that i've read by teachers,the occult aspect is here too.

    So - so

    I read Meetings with Remarkable Men for a book group meeting. I wouldn't have read it otherwise. Others in the group loved it.
