Venture With Ideas - Kenneth Walker
In 1923 Kenneth Walker attended by chance a meeting at which the Russian philosopher, the late P.D. Ouspensky, expounded a system of knowledge he had learnt from G.I. Gurdjieff. He was so impressed by what he had heard there that he continued to be one of Ouspensky's pupils up to the latter's death in 1946.
This book gives an account of the impact of Ouspensky's teaching on the author's mind and of the adventures this led to. Foremost amongst these was his encounter, at a much later date, with G.I. Gurdjieff, the most disturbing, puzzling and, in the true sense of the word, the greatest man he had ever met. Venture with Ideas is not so much a commentary on Gurdjieff's system of knowledge as an account of the man himself.
Sceptical at first of the idea of esoteric knowledge, the author finally concludes that this is the only possible explanation of the events he describes in this book. Gurdjieff in his opinion was one of that long line of men, who, at various time in the world's history, have imparted orally to a small following a teaching of an esoteric nature.
