All and Everything
All and Everything trilogy is the name of "ten books in three series," written by G. I. Gurdjieff.
The trilogy series are as follows:
- Beelzebub's Tales to His Grandson (1950)
- Meetings with Remarkable Men (1963)
- Life Is Real Only Then, When 'I Am' (1974)
The following page is included with each series:
FIRST SERIES: Three books under the title of "Beelzebub’s Tales to His Grandson," or, "An Objectively Impartial Criticism of the Life of Man."
SECOND SERIES: Three books under the common title of "Meetings with Remarkable Men."
THIRD SERIES: Four books under the common title of "Life is Real Only Then, When ‘I Am.'"
All written according to entirely new principles of logical reasoning and strictly directed towards the solution of the following three cardinal problems:
FIRST SERIES: To destroy, mercilessly, without any compromises whatsoever, in the mentation and feelings of the reader, the beliefs and views, by centuries rooted in him, about everything existing in the world.
SECOND SERIES: To acquaint the reader with the material required for a new creation and to prove the soundness and good quality of it.
THIRD SERIES: To assist the arising, in the mentation and in the feelings of the reader, of a veritable, non-fantastic representation not of that illusory world which he now perceives, but of the world existing in reality.
