The influence of Nietzsche on various gurus
After Darwin, and after Nietzsche
This post from Darwiniana brings up and issue that is seldom noticed, although a look at Ouspensky and Orage will remind one of the point. Which is that there is a suspicious connection, not to ancient teachings, but to Nietzsche in the unfolding of the Gudjieff ‘evil’ game.
You have to wonder if these fellows knew anything about ancient wisdom and just started some eclectic experiments in the style of Nietzsche inventing evil.
