Don't Forget: P.D. Ouspensky's Life of Self-Remembering
Bob Hunter, with a foreword by Andrew Phillip Smith
Published by Bardic Press, $19.95, £11.95

Born in Russia in 1878, P. D. Ouspensky was one of the major esoteric thinkers of the twentieth century. Ouspensky had already travelled widely searching for esoteric knowledge, and was an expert on occult literature and the fourth dimension when he met G. I. Gurdjieff in 1915. The methods and ideas, both psychological and cosmological, that Gurdjieff gave Ouspensky exceeded anything he had previously encountered. Although he subsequently parted from Gurdjieff, Ouspensky never ceased to practise and teach the ideas of the system. Ouspensky's books In Search of the Miraculous, The Psychology of Man's Possible Evolution, and The Fourth Way are still the finest introductions to the Fourth Way. Don't Forget follows Ouspensky's outer life as the revolutions and wars of the first half of the twentieth century force him from Russia to Constantinople to Paris, London and New York, in parallel with the development of his inner life and thought. Bob Hunter's biography is the fullest and most detailed available, and contains previously unpublished material on the final phase of Ouspensky's life.

Published August 2006 by Bardic Press. Softcover, 272 pages, ISBN 0-9745667-7-2, $19.95, £11.95

P.D. Ouspensky


In 1915, P.D.Ouspensky, one of the most prominent thinkers of the 20th century, met G.I.Gurdjieff, who revealed to him the system of ideas he had been searching for in his studies and travels. After establishing himself in England and later in the USA, he devoted his life to teaching the ideas now known as the Fourth Way.

The austere manner in which he delivered lectures, in accordance with the times, won him the reputation of a severe intellectual, but, as this book shows, he was also a warm-hearted man with an extraordinary insight into people, as well as history and science.

His books Tertium Organum and A New Model of the Universe
were forerunners to his In Search of the Miraculous and The Fourth Way.
They introduce a new way of living in the ordinary circumstances of our lives. In this book Bob Hunter sets out to give a new perspective on Ouspensky to whom we owe a great debt of gratitude.

Bob Hunter (1934) worked as a writer in his native Australia and also in England, where he joined a Fourth Way Group.
