The need for critique

The reactions to criticizing Gurdjieff, witness the comments, are likely to be caustic, but the time has come to move on, and, in any case, these ‘defenses’ of Gurdjieffianity are invariably misinformed or ‘true believer’ spiels.

What is needed is a critical literature that can forewarn the innocent reader of Ouspensky of the deceptive quality of the so-called ‘teaching’.
The whole game has expanded to vast proportions and yet produced nothing, taking up the time and energy of those who might more productively search elsewhere.
