The Force of Gurdjieff, Vol. 5 : A. R. Orage's Group Talks as Recollected by Sherman Manchester
While being the only disciple acknowledged by Gurdjieff in his own writings, referring to him as "my inner world essence friend," Orage, besides having an important contribution to Gurdjieff's teaching through his help with the first translation of Gurdjieff's books in English language and through his own writings and lectures, was a crucial self standing spiritual figure through his own work and ideas.
