The Four Enemies of the Man of Knowledge

Discussion in 'Philosophy' started by .ViciouS., Oct 11, 2007.

  1. Started reading The teachings of Don Juan: A Yaqui Way of Knowledge by Carlos Castaneda the other day, and not too far in is this excerpt about the 4 enemies of the man of knowledge, or the 4 stages of knowledge. I found it pretty interesting, just want to see your guys take on it:

  2. My friend turned me onto this book last year up at school. Amazing read, I'm still not quite through it but the lessons it ensues and the eyes it will open will be worth the deep thoughts over the material in the book. Enjoi.
  3. Hey, I just found this post four years after it was put up, but I'll reply anyway... I think Castaneda's four enemies are very much relevant. Try Psychology of Hashish by A. Crowley, and figure it out for yourself, or look up Buddhist concepts: vedana, sanna, samkhara,... .
