In his spiritual life, J.G. Bennett seems to have moved from one teacher to another: Gurdjieff, Ouspensky, Madame Ouspensky, Gurdjieff again, Mohammad "Pak" Subuh and the Shivapuri Baba, in a way which some colleagues and friends viewed as anything from frivolity to betrayal. Beneath these changes however, was an unusual continuity of purpose: JGB's search for Absolute Liberation, which he talks of-and then merely in hints-only in the final pages of this book. Witness is the life story of a man who was, as scientist, linguist, traveler, philosopher, writer, husband and father, completely devoted to a personal search for truth. Combining science and oriental studies, Bennett developed a personal philosophy that he expounded in his four-volume work, The Dramatic Universe. Witness traces the development of this philosophy and relates it to his own mystical experiences which have been varied and profound. A foreword by his sons, George and Ben Bennett sheds new light on the private life of the author.
