A PERFECT RESOLUTION

Philosophical Aphorisms by John O'Loughlin

Which can be previewed via the link below the following brief Centretruths editorial:-

 

As suggested by the title, this exceptional project by John O'Loughlin resolves some outstanding problems and anomalies appertaining to the preceding one (Stairway to Judgement [2003]), including, not least, the relative positions of what have been called pseudo-sin and pseudo-grace on the one hand and pseudo-crime and pseudo-punishment on the other, drawing them closer to their respective primary complements in both state and church, so that a more integrated conclusion has been reached in which the hegemonic gender of either axis, as redefined in this title, conditions the nature of the subordinate attribute in relation to the presiding ideal, and conditions it, moreover, in its own image.  However, this work does a lot more than correct what might be loosely called the 'heathenistic' aberrations of the previous one; for it also exposes the extent to which criteria appertaining to good and evil, not to mention wisdom and folly, are significantly dependent on the nature of the society of which they are a part, so that at the end of the day it isn't whether this or that is right or wrong, good or bad, but what exactly conditions people to take one view or another that really matters, and this, not surprisingly, is to a large extent dependent on which gender is effectively controlling society and whether or not there has been a 'transvaluation of values' sympathetic to a formal departure from sensuality to sensibility.  For what is 'right' in sensuality can become very 'wrong' from the standpoint of sensibility, provided society has officially gravitated to such a standpoint - something, I have argued, which contemporary civilization, characterized as urban proletarian and effectively global, has yet to do, with consequences that would reverse much of what currently passes for 'good' and 'wise', as explained in the ensuing text. - A Centretruths editorial.
