This collection of dialogues is taken from a variety of projects, including (besides dialogues) ones involving essays, aphorisms and/or maxims which I wrote between 1977 and 1984, and is therefore representative of a comparatively early phase in my philosophical development.  The subject-matter ranges widely between mostly cultural, social and political concerns, but gradually narrows down towards a specific ideological stance which I have equated with Social Transcendentalism, and thus with a kind of ultimate politico-religious orientation which is less concerned with man than with his hypothetical future transmutation towards what has been termed the post-Human Millennium, a period in time or, rather, eternity when man is superseded or transcended by that which stands closer to the godly if not, in a profounder sense, to and as God conceived in ultimate transcendental terms.  Such, in a nutshell, is the drift of this chronological collection of dialogues, which set me on the road towards my post-dialoguistic, not to mention post-essayistic, purely aphoristic writings and to the eventual apotheosis of my development as a writer of philosophical-cum-theosophical works. – John O’Loughlin.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

 

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 he was brought to England by his mother and grandmother (who had initially returned to Ireland with her daughter upon the death of her Aldershot-based husband) in the mid-50s and subsequently attended schools in Aldershot and, upon the death and repatriation of his grandmother, Carshalton Beeches, Surrey, where, despite an enforced change of denomination from Catholic to Protestant in consequence of having been put into care by his mother, he attended a state school. Graduating in 1970 with an assortment of CSEs (Certificate of Secondary Education) and GCEs (General Certificate of Education), including history and music, he moved to London and went on, via two short-lived jobs, to work at the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music in Bedford Square, where he eventually became responsible for booking ABRSM examination venues throughout Britain and ireland. After a brief flirtation with further education at Redhill Technical College back in Surrey, he returned to his former job in the West End but, due to a combination of factors, left the Associated Board in 1976 and began to pursue a literary vocation which, despite a brief spell as a computer-cum-office-skills tutor at Hornsey 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 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).
