The Searchable Index to G. I. Gurdjieff's Beelzebub's Tales to His Grandson

https://www.amazon.com/Searchable-Index-Gurdjieffs-Beelzebub...
This ebook provides a productive means for searching through, reading and pondering Beelzebub's Tales To His Grandson by G. I. Gurdjieff. It has been written and compiled by Robin Bloor, the author of To Fathom The Gist, Volumes I and II, to help in some of the approaches to fathoming the gist of Beelzebub's Tales described in those books. It is likely to prove useful to anyone who studies The Tales in depth, since the indexes and lists it includes may be thought provoking for the reader.Words (including neologisms) that the compiler considered important or significant are organized into a comprehensive set of categories and arranged within those categories. There are about a hundred such categories covering everything from names of people and places to psychic states.It could be thought of as a "digital concordance" as it includes the full text of The Tales and an index of every word used in The Tales, along with the frequency of its occurrence. However, note that it includes no references to the physical pages of any printed version of the book, so it is not a concordance in that sense. This is the first in a series of ebooks that will be published in an effort to assist those who wish to ascertain the meaning of Gurdjieff's writings.
