The Fourth Way

Overview

The Fourth Way is the most comprehensive statement thus far published of the ideas taught by the late P.D. Ouspensky. Consisting of verbatim records of his oral teaching from 1921 to 1946, it gives a lucid explanation of the practical side of G. I. Gurdjieff's teachings, which Gurdjieff presented in the form of raw materials, Ouspensky's specific task having been to put them together as a systematic whole. Just as Tertium Organum deals with a new mode of thinking, so The Fourth Way is concerned with a new way of living. It shows a way of inner development to be followed under the ordinary conditions of life — as distinct from the three traditional ways that call for retirement from the world: those of the fakir, the monk, and the yogi.

The Fourth Way is a guide for those who seek a true way of inner growth under conditions open to the men and women of today.

Verbatim records of his oral teaching from 1921 to 1946 provide a comprehensive statement of the ideas taught by P.D. Ouspensky.

    The Wrong Way

    This book came highly recommended by other professionals in the field of self help and psychology. I found it disappointing at best. Each chapter was littered with redundant questions which never reached the goal of actually revealing "The Way" as promised. The anticipated Fourth path was never exposed and remains as mysterious as before. I'm not fond of paying for something just to be riddled to death. I can't understand the attraction. Sorry!

    Another Desert Island Book From Ouspensky

    The only aspect of the Work, or, Fourth Way, this book lacks (and keeps it from being comprehensive) is the information on sex that's included in IN SEARCH OF THE MIRACULOUS. That aside this book is mandatory. I have copies of IN SEARCH..., THE FOURTH WAY and THE PSYCHOLOGY OF MAN'S POSSIBLE EVOLUTION stapled and taped together as one book. THE FOURTH WAY is, for the most part, question and answer and reads fast and to the point and is structured (and with a good index) so that you can find individual subjects easily. Each chapter is devoted to a large separate aspect of the Work. Don't get jaded on how valuable and rare the knowledge in this book is. (Especially when it's played and made into your spiritual body in real life...)
