P. D. Ouspensky

Gurdjieff International Review


by Christopher Fremantle

Russian author, mathematician and mystic, Peter Demianovich Ouspensky was born in Moscow in 1878. His philosophic and speculative writings Tertium Organum and A New Model of the Universe were bestsellers in the United States in the 1920s, but he is chiefly known for his lucid account of the teaching of G. I. Gurdjieff, published posthumously with the subject’s consent under the title In Search of the Miraculous.
