Gurdjieff, Enneagram and the Fourth Way

Gurdjieff, Enneagram and the Fourth Way. This short essay will survey the Armenian mystic Gurdjieff’s central ideas, locate his sources and delineate the main reasons for his “Work”; explain chief methods and evaluate his place in the history of ideas and in the contemporary visions of human condition. From the book: What the Theosophical movement had been teaching in last two decades of the 19th century, Gurdjieff, armed with his vitalist temper and adventurous spirit tried to achieve in practice. For all the nice talk about India and “Masters”, Theosophists remained an influential, but rather impotent debate club. Our hero, Georgi Ivanovitch Gurdjieff, yearned for “the right stuff” of superhuman mastery and actualization of the “miraculous”, a pervasive theme during the fin de siecle.
