Overview

To appreciate the teachings of Gurdjieff we must approach him not so much knowledge as with understanding. Even in the light of the writings of Ouspensky and Orage, which strive to make Gurdjieff's work more accessible, Gurdgieff has been condemned as a charlatan, difficult to understand and impossible to follow.

Margaret Anderson worked with Gurdjieff in France and during that time learnt that if we could follow his doctrines on human evolution, we would be free from hate, madness and war. Her aims in this book are to create an evocation of his philosophy and to convince the reader that Gurdjieff was by no means an imposter. A clear, simple study of his teachings, The Unknowable Gurijieff will banish misconceptions about this great thinker and demonstrate his contemporary relevance to both the individual and society a whole.
