J. G. Bennett

J. G. BennettJohn Godolphin Bennett (1897-1974), was a British scientist, mathematician and philosopher who integrated scientific research with studies of Asiatic languages and religions. Throughout his life, Bennett travelled widely and met many little-known but important spiritual leaders. In the early 1920s, he was introduced to G.I. Gurdjieff and P.D. Ouspensky, who both became central guiding forces in his life.

A man of extraordinary insight and accomplishment, Mr. Bennett worked with G.I. Gurdjieff and P.D. Ouspensky, traveled extensively in Central Asia, and came into contact with many of the world's spiritual leaders.

Having a remarkable ability to express the most complex ideas with conciseness and clarity, Bennett's books and talks reveal a man who was at home in the worlds of spirit, matter, and time.

A reader from Caracas
This book is a Must for understanding certain process in the conscience development. It clarified a wide rank of phenomena that is real hard to attach by oneself without propper gidance and goes further in the topics explained in "Deeper Man" by Mr. Bennet. Mr. Bennet is not merely a follower of Mr. Gurdjieff teaching, but he develops it in order to be of real help for the cientific and logical mind. This book is a clear and concise descriptions of the energy levels in wich everything is inmersed. Of course there is no way to prove "objectivelly" some of the points exposed here, but, as a person who has been for over 10 years working with the ideas of the 4th way, I have found very clarifying ideas over certain topics of the WORK; it sets crucial reference points to underestanding the Work Ideas and procedures.

This is not by any means a "beginners book", I would reccomend to read before "Psichology of man's possible evolution", "The Fourth Way" by P. Ouspensky and "Theory of celestial influence" by Rodney Collin.
