Gurdjieff's Invention of America (New)
by Taylor, Paul Beekman
Publisher: Eureka Editions
Book ID: 9789072395542, 9072395549
Gurdjieff's Invention of America, a revised version of the author’s earlier Gurdjieff's America, traces
Gurdjieff's engagement with three “Americas.”
The first, unveiled to him when still young, was Thomas Edison's America of energetic technology and inventiveness. The second, gleaned through cultural contacts with Americans abroad, was a society and culture in a still formative stage.
Then, in the course of eight visits to the United States he constructed an idea of America as a moral and cultural model for a renewal of human consciousness worldwide. The characteristics of this triadic America are indicated eloquently in Gurdjieff's “Beelzebub in America,” the longest chapter in All and Everything. His penetrating insight into the negative and positive aspects of America there rings as true at the dawn of the twenty-first century as it did in the middle of the twentieth.
Significant to Gurdjieff's success in disseminating his ideas throughout the United States was the number of fruitful contacts he made with Americans, particularly the friendships he forged with his appointed American deputies A. R. Orage and N. J. Toomer, both of whom gathered hundreds of followers to Gurdjieff's ideas in New York and Chicago, bases for the future development of current thriving teaching centers in America.
