INTRODUCTION

THE ideas we shall deal with here represent only one aspect of the teaching transmitted during his life by G. I. Gurdjieff. They acquire their real sense only as one of the elements of a greater whole upon which-for every man who recognizes its necessity-the work of inner transformation is based.

These ideas were expounded, first and foremost, by Gurdjieff himself in his writings\u2019-in the form of hints, to be sure, yet with masterly breadth of vision. They have been echoed with remarkable fidelity in \u2018In Search of the Miraculous\u2019 by P. D.Ouspensky

Actually, their meaning and real importance first became apparent in the living experience which Gurdjieff provided for his students, not only by his explanations and by his direct answers to their questions, or by exercises corresponding to the stages of their development, but also, and above all, by having them participate in the tests offered by life itself.

It was Jeanne de Salzmann\u2019s achievement to preserve and transmit in all their original authenticity not only the written part, but also the oral and practical parts, of the teaching given by Gurdjieff, which without her would surely have been lost. We owe her everything that has reached us.

1. G. I. Gurdjieff, All and Everything (London: Routledge & Kegan Paul, 1950, 1963).

2. P. D. Ouspensky, In Search of the Miraculous (London: Routledge & Kegan Paul, 1950). See also P. D. Ouspensky\u2019s The Psychology of Man\u2019s Possible Evolution (London: Routledge & Kegan Paul, 1951). Although they deal with little more than the first stages of this teaching, reading both these books of Ouspensky is invaluable for anyone who wishes to go deeply into these ideas. Gurdjieff\u2019s own book provides a more complete view of the ideas, but is more difficult to approach.
