Philosophical Aphorisms by John O'Loughlin

Which can be previewed via the link following the introduction below:-


John O'Loughlin wrote the greater part of this volume of aphoristic philosophy during the better part of a wet and windy autumn week in Galway, Eire, 2008, when his health, bad as it had been back in London, was at an all-time low and every page was an immense struggle with his physical condition.  Not having systematically undertaken any such project since 2005, the date attaching to Jesus - A Summing Up, he was a little unsure that he would be able to proceed with any confidence anyway but, as things turned out, his old habits of scrawling in a notebook with a pen were soon resurrected, and he found, in spite of his poor health, that ideas came in no short supply - indeed, that the spirit was willing but the flesh decidedly weakened by illness.  Nonetheless, much of the work turned out to be less of a resume of his philosophy, including what had already been committed to weblogs in the meantime, than an exploration of new territory, in which he had to struggle with a variety of conflicting possibilities and strive to reach as coherent an assessment and conclusion as possible.  In retrospect, one can say that without subsequent revision back in London and some additional appended material, the results would have been inconclusive, if not misleading.  But, as things turned out, much of this newer material has now passed the test of closer inspection and will, we believe, stand the test of time as further evidence of philosophical truth, adding a veneer of certitude to the finished product.  In this title, a conclusive account of morality, in all its various permutations, has been undertaken and resolved, though only that morality which is logically likely to lead to or encompass the best of all possible worlds has been ideologically endorsed, together with its corresponding unmorality, a term which aptly describes the correlative, if subordinate, gender position in this best of all possible philosophical worlds. - A Centretruths editorial.
