In this episode of our third series, we present part five, and the final part of P. D. Ouspensky’s book, The Psychology of Man’s Possible Evolution, which contains the Fifth Lecture. This work, first written in 1934, and published posthumously in New York in 1950, is now out of copyright. In this lecture the following is discussed: knowledge and Being, types of man, differences in Being and understanding, circles of humanity, need for common language, observing attention, and the three parts of three centers.

In this episode of our third series, we present part two of P. D. Ouspensky’s book, The Psychology of Man’s Possible Evolution, which contains the Second Lecture.

In this episode of our third series, we present the part one of P. D. Ouspensky’s book, The Psychology of Man’s Possible Evolution, which contains the Introduction and the First Lecture. A great work, first written in 1934, and published posthumously in New York in 1950, now out of copyright, which explains that practically never in history has psychology stood at so low a level as at the present time. It has lost all touch with its origin and its meaning so that now it is even difficult to define the term psychology: that is, to say what psychology is and what it studies. And this is so in spite of the fact that never in history have there been so many psychological theories and so many psychological writings. Psychology is sometimes called a new science. This is quite wrong. Psychology is, perhaps, the oldest science, and, unfortunately, in its most essential features a forgotten science. This book contains as much truth today as it did then.
