Tertium Organum

Ouspensky, P.D.

 Ouspensky wrote the first edition of this book in Russian in 1912. An unauthorized English translation of the second Russian edition (1916) was published in the US in 1920. This new edition is the authorized translation begun in collaboration with Ouspensky and completed in line with his instructions after his death. Ouspensky attempts to account for the "miraculous," or the world beyond that which our senses reveal. In order to approach, or even begin to deal with that world, he maintained: "Science must come to mysticism, and then to the study of forms of consciousness¯and consequently of perception¯other than ours. Science must throw off almost everything old and must start from a new theory of cognition, for mysticism offers a new approach" (p. 215). The book is an attempt to present this mystical approach.
