Max Gorman

Max Gorman was born in Karachi, India (now Pakistan). He was educated at a convent in the Himalayas, then Lawrence School, Mount Abu, and privately by a hermit in a ruin in the jungle near Delhi. Next he was sent to Rugby School. He went to Oxford, mystic rather than academic, to read Poetry under the guise of History. He became wandering tutor to sons of owners of Scottish Castles and English mansions. He returned to Oxford to teach literatire, before taking up the post of Tutor in Environmental Ethics at the Extramural Department of the University. He moved to the fair city of Brighton to work at the Friends Adult Education Centre as tutor in Mystical Studies and Early Christianity. He has held Seminars in developmental philosophy at the University of Brighton, and the University of Sussex.
