In this first major biography of George Ivanovitch Gurdjieff, James Moore offers an entertaining and reliable introduction to one of the Western world's most remarkable and little-understood revolutionary thinkers. The turbulent half-century since the death of Gurdjieff, holistic philosopher and 'Teacher of Dancing', has seen unprecedented changes, yet the fundamental suffering and entrapment of humanity remains the same. Gurdjieff's work is perhaps more relevant today than ever before and this masterly tribute has a vital role to play in ensuring that his ideas reach new generations of readers in search of authentic spiritual teachings.

He felt an 'irrepressible striving' to understand clearly the precise significance, in general, of the life process on earth of all the outward forms of breathing creatures and, in particular, of the aim of human life in the light of this interpretation. But why this deep speculation upon life? Gurdjieff after all was a grazier's son, and had learnt to shoot a wolf or squash a louse without the least philosophizing. Perhaps in one special sense, the stars in their courses had drawn him to his transcendent question.
