Comprised, in part, of an overspill from Opus D'Oeuvre and also of several fresh cycles, this project expands on the relationship between sin and grace on the one hand and crime and punishment on the other, by incorporating, in more detail than ever before, anthropomorphic distinctions between Father and Son in the one case, and Daughter and Mother in the other, showing how all such symbols can be applied to religion and what the consequences are when they are seen in a religious light.  Also of especial importance here is the correction which I was at last able to make concerning an old phrase ('salvation from sins and/or punishments of the world') that had been taken for granted in certain previous texts but was dealt its final death-blow here in what, with its philosophical consistency and greater profundity, I like to think of as one of my leading cyclical works. – 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 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 and 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).
