aphorsitic philosophy







Philosophical Aphorisms by John O’Loughlin

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


Since it follows on directly from Revaluations and Transvaluations (2004), this title is bound to restate many of the philosophical positions and contentions already taken, but it does so with even greater certitude and a more exactingly comprehensive assessment of the various components of the total picture which leaves one in no doubt that something philosophically definitive has been achieved, and that any further revaluations or transvaluations are only likely to happen in relation to what is already broadly or essentially true, not contrary to it! Yet even then, that would not be entirely the case!  For this further volume of aphoristic philosophy by John O’Loughlin still manages to refine upon and even to modify certain of the contentions or positions taken by its predecessor, not least in respect of the evaluation of class on a more axially specific basis which helps, we believe, to clarify the distinctions between noumenal and phenomenal, noble and plebeian, in such fashion that one could never again accept anything less comprehensively exacting for gospel or fail to understand just how different the two axial positions really are.... As in the case, for example, of their contrary social and moral fates, not least in respect of salvation and damnation, and who or what is saved or damned, counter-damned or counter-saved, and how that should be morally or socially interpreted.  But we would be understating the achievements of this project if, quite apart from its contribution to our understanding of literature from a more axially comprehensive point-of-view, we were to ignore the original contribution it makes to an understanding of how civilization progresses or regresses on both positive and negative terms in an alternation, stemming from primal action, between reaction and attraction which takes it through successive stages of devolutionary or evolutionary development on both liberal and totalitarian, pluralist and monist, terms towards the possibility of a culmination which, antithetical to how it began, will signify a sort of omega freedom that contrasts with the alpha freedom as the most positive psychic reaction with the most positive somatic action, having passed through several intermediate phases of reaction and attraction in soma and psyche which both confirm and advance a dualistic alternation between pluralistic and monistic, liberal and totalitarian, systems. – A Centretruths editorial.
