With subjects that range from modern architecture and myth to the relationship of sensuality to sensibility and the evolution of media technology, this work in my multi-opus oeuvre is sufficiently variegated as to be of general interest, even if it didn’t also contain material which expands on Magnus Dei, its immediate precursor, and is instantly recognizable in relation to the nature and development of my philosophy within an elemental structure which not only evaluates things or situations from a standpoint based in the four elements, but embraces a moral evaluation of them on both sensual and sensible terms in either inorganic or organic contexts.  This text certainly does that to what seems to be a conclusive degree, and a fuller understanding of some subjects, including literature, the Arts in general, and the relationship of science to religion or of politics to economics, would not be possible without such a comprehensive perspective which, whilst doing justice to every element or subject discussed, never looses track of its priorities and the goal that such a philosophy inexorably leads to when, as here, a proper moral and ideological evaluation of the various options has been systematically undertaken and achieved. – 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 Athenry 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 CSE’s (Certificate of Secondary Education) and GCE’s (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 (upon promotion to clerical officer Gd.1) for booking examination venues throughout Britain and Ireland for the Board's several examiners. 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 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).
