Although a relatively minor work in itself, this volume of essayistic aphorisms and aphoristic notes is significant inasmuch as it signifies another of my attempts to approach and develop Truth from a consistently aphoristic, not to say ideological, angle, and may be regarded as a harbinger of the types of ‘supernotational’ projects which, with a certain aphoristic flair, were to preoccupy me during the years 1985-93.  Divided into two parts, both of which are largely concerned with evaluating and revaluating various philosophical positions either already taken or common to my work in general, it paved the way for the systematic evaluating and revaluating which was to become so characteristic of my work from now on, and to prove of such significance in my ability to develop and summarize Truth. The principal theme and concern of Evaluations and Revaluations is Social Transcendentalism and its relationship to what I term 'the Centre' - a politico-religious concept which the ideology in question would like to democratically advance at the expense of traditional state/church relativity. – John O’Loughlin.

John O’Loughlin was born in Salthill, Galway, the Republic of Ireland, of mixed Irish- and British-born parents in 1952. Following a parental split partly due to his mother's Aldershot origins (her father, a Presbyterian from Donegal, had served in the British Army), he was brought to England by his mother and grandmother (who upon the premature death of her husband had initially returned to Ireland after a lengthy marital absence from Athenry) in the mid-50s and, having had the benefit of private tuition from a Catholic priest, subsequently attended St. Joseph's and St. George's RC schools in Aldershot, Hants, and, with an enforced change of denomination from Catholic to Protestant in consequence of having been sent to a children's home by his mother upon the death and repatriation of his grandmother, he went on to attend first Barrow Hedges Primary School in Carshalton Beeches, Surrey, and then Carshalton High School for Boys. Upon leaving the latter in 1970 with an assortment of CSE’s (Certificate of Secondary Education) and GCE’s (General Certificate of Education), including history and music, he moved up to London proper and went on, via two short-lived jobs, to work at the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music in Bedford Square WC1, where, with some prior experience himself of having sat and passed (with merit) a grade 4 piano exam, he eventually became responsible for booking examination venues throughout Britain and Ireland. After a brief flirtation with Redhill Technical College back in Surrey, he returned to his former job in the West End but, due to a combination of personal factors, quit the ABRSM in 1976 and began to pursue a literary vocation which, despite a brief spell as a computer and office-skills tutor at Hornsey Management Agency within the local YMCA in the late '80s and early '90s, he has steadfastly continued with ever since. His novels include Changing Worlds (1976), An Interview Reviewed (1979), Secret Exchanges (1980), Sublimated Relations (1981), and Deceptive Motives (1981). Since the mid-80s Mr O'Loughlin has dedicated himself almost exclusively to philosophy, which he regards as his true literary vocation, and has penned more than seventy titles of a philosophical nature, including Devil and God (1985-6), Towards the Supernoumenon (1987), Elemental Spectra (1988-9), Philosophical Truth (1991-2) and, more recently, The Best of All Possible Worlds (2008), The Centre of Truth (2009), Insane but not Mad (2011) and Philosophic Flights of Poetic Fancy (2012).
