I ought by now to have learnt my lesson with regards to the sort of claim made before about definitive texts but, frankly, some further philosophical progress has been made, if in regard to a revaluation - evaluating and revaluating being germane to the cyclical structures of my work - of a quite long-standing evaluation concerning devolution, which only confirms that intellectual progress happens by degrees and is a long and often tortuous process during the course of which new insights and logical configurations come to light which enable one to readdress an old contention or, in this case, bone of contention, to a more satisfactory resolution.... Which does not mean that progress towards some definitive position isn’t possible or is simply a delusion, as some would have us believe; but it takes time and involves many rethinks and revaluations along the way such that only a patient and honest type of person, more likely male and not overly concerned with commercial viability or professorial credibility, would be capable of undertaking, given all the complexities involved.  Nevertheless further progress, or perhaps I should say redress, has emerged here, in The Struggle for Ultimate Freedom, a well-nigh definitive text, and it is to my cyclical credit that I have been able to recycle old material and thereby fashion something new, not least in respect of a more developed concept of religious freedom which will require the ideological subordination and even democratic supersession of political freedoms if globalization is ultimately to emerge in a more credibly universal guise - a contention which, although touched upon before, here achieves something like a definitive presentation. – 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 with her Aldershot-born daughter upon the death of her husband) in the mid-50s and subsequently attended junior schools in Aldershot (Hants) and, upon the death and repatriation of his grandmother, Carshalton Beeches (Surrey) where, despite an enforced change of denomination from Catholic to Protestant in consequence of having been sent to Hill House Children's Home by his mother, he subsequently attended a state high school in Sutton. Graduating in 1970 with an assortment of CSEs (Certificate of Secondary Education) and GCEs (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 as a clerical officer he eventually became responsible for booking ABRSM examination venues throughout Britain and Ireland. After a brief flirtation with Redhill Technical College back in Surrey, where he had enrolled to do English and History A Levels, he returned to his former job in the West End but, due to a combination of factors, quit the Associated Board in 1976 and began to pursue a literary vocation which, despite a brief spell as a computer and office-skills tutor at Hornsey YMCA in the late '80s and early '90s, where he gained some NVQs, 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 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).
