Appearing ten years after the death of its author, The Fourth Way is the most complete statement so far published of the ideas which P. D. Ouspensky taught. Consisting of verbatim records of his oral teaching from the year 1921 to 1946, it develops the ideas set forth in In Search of the Miraculous and gives a lucid explanation of the practical side of G. I. Gurdjieff's teaching. This shows a Way of inner development to be followed in ordinary life conditions, as distinct from the three traditional Ways that call for retirement from the world - those of the fakir, monk and yogi. Gurdjieff gave this teaching in the form of raw material which it was Ouspensky's specific task to put together into a systematic whole. When he came to London Ouspensky made it his work to transmit these ideas by means of lectures and talks. Ouspensky's first major book, Tertium Organum, dealt with a new way of thinking; The Fourth Way is concerned with a new way of living. In it his answers to questions on a very wide range of problems are given with characteristic clarity, simplicity and sureness. This book will be a precious guide to those who are seeking not an easy but a true way of inner growth within conditions open to many men and women today.
