As the logical successor to The Dialectics of Civilization (2004), this title, which has been called The Dialectcs of Gender and Class, delves more profoundly into the distinctions between 'historical' and 'post-historical' civilizations, not least in respect of the shift from a genuine phenomenal and pseudo-noumenal status in the one to a pseudo-phenomenal and genuine noumenal status in the other, proportionate to the degree of post-historicity actually obtaining.  With that in mind, we also find, in this work, a more definite sense of the relationships between gender and class, as well as the extent to which the seemingly complementary co-existence of the genders on a given class basis requires a hegemonic/subordinate dichotomy between them which, however it pans out, enables such a co-existence to prevail in the first place, quite apart from the modification of relations which results from the interactivity of antithetically complementary classes when once axial polarities have been established, with their gender paradoxes, as also described in one or two previous titles by me, but with less methodical exactitude than is to be found here and certainly with less overall certainty as to the specific class status of a given elemental position, be it phenomenal or noumenal.  For the linking of class with element and/or of anti-element with anticlass [I generally only retain hyphens with clashing vowels] is now brought to a conclusive resolution which reaffirms the standing of gender in relation to each, making the relationship between gender and class complementary to an elemental persuasion, whether in sensuality or sensibility, that is the basis from which all gender and class distinctions spring.  Yet my philosophy would not be true to its genius if it did not also - and categorically - affirm an ideological bias in respect of a specific elemental and anti-elemental persuasion, thereby bringing to the plethora of options and findings a destiny which, for the seeker after ultimate truth, would leave him in no doubt as to the correct solution to the problem of choice and reality of options - a solution which can have only one outcome, and that of divine devising! – John O’Loughlin.

John O’Loughlin was born in Salthill, Galway, the Republic of Ireland, of Irish- and British-born parents in 1952. Following a parental split partly due to his mother's Aldershot origins (her father, a Presbyterian from Donegal, had served in the British Army), he was brought to England by his mother and grandmother (who had initially returned to Ireland with her daughter following the death of her Aldershot-based husband after a lengthy marital absence from Athenry) in the mid-50s and, having had the benefit of private tuition from a Catholic priest, subsequently attended St. Joseph's and St. George's RC schools in Aldershot, Hants, and, with an enforced change of denomination from Catholic to Protestant in consequence of having been put into care by his mother upon the death and repatriation of his ethnically-conservative grandmother, he went on to attend first Barrow Hedges Primary School in Carshalton Beeches, Surrey, and then Carshalton High School for Boys in Sutton, where he ultimately became a sixth-form prefect. Upon leaving high school in pre-GCSE era 1970 with an assortment of CSEs (Certificate of Secondary Education) and GCEs (General Certificate of Education), including history and music, he moved up to London and went on, via two short-lived jobs, one of which was at Ivor Mairants Music Centre on Rathbone Place, to work at the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music in Bedford Square, where, with some prior experience himself of having sat and passed (with merit) an ABRSM Gd.4 piano exam, he eventually became responsible for booking examination venues throughout Britain and Ireland. After a brief flirtation with A'Level English and History at 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 personal factors, not the least of which had to do with the depressing consequences of an enforced return to north London, left the Associated Board in 1976 and began to pursue a literary vocation which, despite a brief spell as a computer-cum-office-skills tutor at Hornsey YMCA in the late '80s and early '90s, during which time he added some computer-related NVQs to his other qualifications, he has steadfastly continued with ever since. His novels include Changing Worlds (1976), Cross-Purposes (1979), Logan's Influence (1980), Sublimated Relations (1981), and False Pretences (1982). Since the mid-80s John O'Loughlin has dedicated himself almost exclusively to philosophy, which he regards as his true literary vocation, and has penned numerous titles of a philosophical nature, including Devil and God (1985–6), Towards the Supernoumenon (1987), Elemental Spectra (1988–9), Philosophical Truth (1991–2) Maximum Truth (1993), The Soul of Being (1998), Point Omega Point (2002), The Dialectics of Synthetic Attraction (2004), The Centre of Truth (2009), Musings of a Superfluous Man (2011) and, more recently, Atoms and Pseudo-Atoms (2014). John O'Loughlin is a life-long bachelor who, more from necessity than desire, has lived at various addresses in the north London borough of Haringey, to which he moved from Merstham, Surrey, in 1974.
