Here at last, compared with texts like Pathways to 'the Kingdom', is a more informal and even relaxed work, which enabled me to lay one or two old autobiographical ghosts to rest while still continuing to haunt the realm of philosophy in no uncertain metaphysical terms!  In fact, it may be that this 2001 project enabled me to lay one or two long-standing philosophical ghosts to rest as well, since I did not shy away from a fresh look at some old theories and was duly rewarded, I believe, by a new perspective on certain things which I had begun to take - foolishly or naively – too much for granted, even though my previous treatment of them had been anything but conventional!  I believe that courage is its own reward and that he who dares to venture where none has gone before deserves the beneficial consequences, whatever they may be.  All I can say is that in this text certain very complicated and even paradoxical philosophical and moral issues have been tackled afresh and solved, to the best of my ability, in a way and with a structural comprehensiveness which leaves very little room for dissent.  In that, I think I have achieved, with a work that went on to become more universal than personal, far more than I could possibly have hoped for at the beginning! – 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 over to England by his mother and grandmother (who upon the death of her Aldershot-based husband had intially returned to Ireland after a lengthy marital absence) in the mid-50s and subsequently attended schools in Aldershot, Hants 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 as a clerical officer 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 factors, left the ABRSM in 1976 and began to pursue a literary vocation which, despite a brief spell as a computer tutor and office-skills 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 to philosophy, which he regards as his true literary vocation, and hss 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).
