Abstract:

IN A lifetime that nearly coincided with the 20th century, William Segal left a legacy of insight, compassion, and probing intelligence--as a businessman and publisher, an artist, and as a seeker. Segal's life is explored through his own writings recounting his personal experiences with and interpretations of, among others, P.D. Ouspensky, D.T. Suzuki, and above all, G.I. Gurdjieff. With dozens of full-color reproductions of Segal's paintings and contributions by Ken Burns (who made Segal the subject of three documentaries), Robert Thurman, and Peter Brook, this is an unforgettable memoir that glimmers with insight. It will serve as a guidebook for anyone pursuing his or her own search for self-realization and understanding.
