With a title that is obviously a pun on 'Agnus Dei', this eighteenth example of my cyclical philosophy (theosophy) expands on The Right to Sanity (2000) in order to embrace a deeper analysis of the distinction between 'right' and 'wrong', or immorality and morality, and does so in relation to a number of dichotomous contexts, including sensuality and sensibility, competition and cooperation, insanity and sanity, race and culture.  In fact, this text boldly delves into the ‘racial’ dichotomy between Nordic and Celtic, and seeks to deduce certain moral distinctions between the two races, as well as to compare them with the generality of darker races on this planet from what the author contends, on the basis of metaphorical illustrations, to be a morally more advantageous, if not climatically favoured, standpoint.  Not least of the subjects under investigation here is the distinction between immanence and transcendence, which few thinkers would seem to have treated with the subtlety and profundity it deserves. – 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 upon the death of her Aldershot-based husband after a lengthy marital absence) in the mid-50s and subsequently attended St. Joseph's and St. George's schools in Aldershot, Hants, and, with an enforced change of denomination from Catholic to Protestant in consequence of having been put into care with Hill House Children's Home by his mother upon the death and repatriation of his grandmother, he attended 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 CSEs (Certificate of Secondary Education) and GCEs (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, where he eventually became responsible for booking examination venues throughout Britain and Ireland. After a brief flirtation with 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, left the ABRSM in 1976 and began to pursue a literary vocation which, despite a brief spell as a computer/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).
