Meetings with Remarkable Men, G. I. Gurdjieff‚Äôs autobiographical account of his youth and early travels, has become something of a legend since it was first published in 1963. A compulsive ‚Äúread‚Äù in the tradition of adventure narratives, but suffused with Gurdjieff‚Äôs unique perspective on life, it is organized around portraits of remarkable men and women who aided Gurdjieff‚Äôs search for hidden knowledge or accompanied him on his journeys in remote parts of the Near East and Central Asia.¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† This is a book of lives, not doctrines, although readers will long value Gurdjieff‚Äôs accounts of conversations with sages. Meetings conveys a haunting sense of what it means to live fully‚Äîwith conscience, with purpose, and with heart. Among the remarkable individuals whom the reader will come to know are Gurdjieff‚Äôs father (a traditional bard), a Russian prince dedicated to the search for Truth, a Christian missionary who entered a World Brotherhood deep in Asia, and a woman who escaped white slavery to become a trusted member of Gurdjieff‚Äôs group of fellow seekers. Gurdjieff‚Äôs account of their attitudes in the face of external challenges and in the search to understand the mysteries of life is the real substance of this classic work.
