Welcome to the METAPHYSICAL PHILOSOPHY of

Taking its thematic structure from the previous work, Yang and Anti-Yin (2004-5), this volume of aphoristic philosophy entitled Lamb and Anti-Lion delves deeper into noumenal sensibility and its full gender and ideological implications, taking the biblical metaphors of ‘lamb’ and ‘lion’ to their ultimate conclusions in what becomes an exact parallel to the ‘yang’ and ‘anti-yin’ of our metaphysical and antimetachemical elemental positions.  But these elements are also investigated in greater detail, and provide ample scope for the enhancement or clarification of certain terms, including those with other elemental affinities than that with which we are chiefly concerned here.  Thus a broadening-out from the central and core position of my philosophy is once again to the fore, and other positions are accordingly revaluated and modified in the light of my principal contentions.  Also modified, in this respect, are theories concerning life-after-death, which are now shown in a new light, not least in relation to my philosophy of history and the subdivisions which accrue to each of the three principal stages of civilization.  I think this is one of the factors which, in this text, has made it possible for me to be tougher on the Catholic Church than ever before and to demonstrate, logically and rationally, that the destiny of globalization can only be independent of both Western and Eastern traditions, since the full-flowering of noumenal sensibility is beyond the scope of any tradition rooted in its noumenal antithesis, no matter how obliquely. – John O’Loughlin.

John O’Loughlin was born in Salthill, Galway, the Republic of Ireland, of 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 death of her Aldershot-based husband had initially returned to Ireland with her daughter 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 put into care 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 in Sutton, where he ultimately became a sixth-form prefect. Upon leaving high school in pre-GCSE era 1970 with an assortment of CSEs (Certificate of Secondary Education) and GCEs (General Certificate of Education), including history and music, he moved up to London and went on, via two short-lived jobs, one of which was at Ivor Mairants Music Centre on Rathbone Place, to work at the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music in Bedford Square, where, with some prior experience himself of having sat and passed (with merit) an ABRSM Gd.4 piano exam, he eventually became responsible as a clerical officer for booking examination venues throughout Britain and Ireland. After a brief flirtation with English and History A Levels at Redhill Technical College back in Surrey, where he was then living, he returned to his former job in the West End but, due to a combination of personal factors, not the least of which had to do with the depressing consequences of an enforced return to north London, left the Associated Board in 1976 and began to pursue a literary vocation which, despite a brief spell as a computer and office-skills tutor at Hornsey Managemenht Agency (within the local YMCA) in the late '80s and early '90s, during which time he added some computer-related NVQs to his other qualifications, he has steadfastly continued with ever since. His novels include Changing Worlds (1976), Cross-Purposes (1979), Logan's Influence (1980), Sublimated Relations (1981), and False Pretences (1982). 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) Maximum Truth (1993), The Soul of Being (1998), Point Omega Point (2002), The Dialectics of Synthetic Attraction (2004), The Centre of Truth (2009), Musings of a Superfluous Man (2011) and, more recently, Atoms and Pseudo-Atoms (2014) and The Black Notebooks (2015). John O'Loughlin is a life-long bachelor who, more from necessity than desire, has lived at various addresses in London N4 and N8 since 1974.
