They are concerned with directly applying certain deep ideas to daily life. They are a valuable source for studying central work-ideas and their practical application in daily life. The Psychological Commentaries were written from Dr. Nicoll's own understanding of the teaching in its practical application to himself and to the members of his groups. In these papers the fundamental ideas of the System of Gurdjieff and Ouspensky are expounded with clarity so that help is given to the reader towards understanding the efforts required to reach that individual level of development indicated as the goal of all the Great Religions-attainable only by practical work on oneself.
