The Psychological Commentaries of Maurice Nicoll in five volumes are well known to students of the Work. For those of you unfamiliar with Nicoll here is the short forward to the Commentaries:
These Commentaries were written on the Teaching which Dr. Maurice Nicoll received personally from Ouspensky, whom he met in 1921, and Gurdjieff, whom he met in 1922. He studied under Ouspensky and then in 1922 went to Gurdjieff's Institute at Fontainebleau for a year, after which he returned to London and studied under Ouspensky until 1931 when Ouspensky gave him permission to teach the System. Dr. Nicoll's teaching has continued from 1931 until the present day. The Commentaries which form this book were begun during the war years and continued afterwards.
Use this link to Volume 1 of the Commentaries, and see pages 68 to 87 where Nicoll gives a detailed account of the wrong work of centers.
