Psychological Commentaries on the Teaching of Gurdjieff & Ouspensky Volume Three
Vincent Stuart Ltd. London, 1957. Third Impression, Hardcover (Original Cloth). Good Condition/No Dust Jacket. the Third volume (which comprises page numbers 779 to 1226 of the complete work) of this classic on the fundamental ideas of Gurdjieff and Ouspensky, expounded by one of their foremost students. The Commentaries, concerned with the immediate processes of applying certain principles in daily life, have come to be known and loved by entire generations of people interested in the ongoing evolution of psychological transformation. Some of the topics discussed include the emotions, suffering, awareness, man as a self-developing organism, what it means to work on oneself, effort, prayer, dreams, cosmology, self-love, memory, violence and understanding, relationship, and habitual patterns. The five-volume Psychological Commentaries was written from the author's own understanding of the Gurdjieff/Ouspensky teachings and their practical application to himself and members of study groups. Delivered on a weekly basis to those groups, they were recorded verbatim, as they appear in this volume. One of the leading British psychologists of his time, Maurice Nicoll was a student of Jung, Gurdjieff, and Ouspensky. At the latter's request, he devoted the last twenty years of his life to passing on the ideas he had received from his teachers. This devotion culminated in Psychological Commentaries. N.B.
