In November 1949, architect Frank Lloyd Wright announced the death of 'the greatest man in the world,' yet few knew who he was talking about. Enigmatic, misunderstood, declared a charlatan, and recently dubbed 'the Rasputin who inspired Mary Poppins,' Gurdjieff's life has become a legend. But who really was George Ivanovich Gurdjieff? Employing the latest research and discoveries, including previously unpublished reminiscences of the real man, Tobias Churton investigates the truth beneath the self-crafted mythology of Gurdjieff's life recounted in Meetings with Remarkable Men. Showing how Gurdjieff deliberately re-shaped elements of his life as parables of his system, Churton explains how he didn't want people to follow his footsteps but to find their own, to wake up from the hypnosis that drives us blindly through life. Offering a vital understanding of the man who asked 'How many of you are really alive?' the author reveals the continuing importance of Gurdjieff's philosophy for the awakening of man.
