Maurice Nicoll

Maurice Nicoll (July 19, 1884 - August 30, 1953). Born at the Manse in Kelso, England. He studied at Cambridge, at St. Bartholomew's Hospital, and in Vienna, Berlin and Zurich where he became a colleague of Karl Gustav Jung. After his Army Medical Service in the 1914 War in Gallipoli and Mesopotamia he returned to England to become a psychiatrist. In 1922 he became a pupil of G. I. Gurdjieff and later on started his own groups in England applying the ideas he had been introduced to by Gurdjieff and P. D. Ouspensky. He is perhaps best known as the author of the five volume series of texts on the teachings of Gurdjieff and Ouspensky: Psychological Commentaries on the Teaching of Gurdjieff and Ouspensky (Boston: Shambala, 1996 and Samuel Weiser Inc., 1996).
