Each time I write a new ‘book’ – or is that e-scroll? - it is as though it were the literary equivalent of a music CD, with a number of titles that, by and large, are independent of each other and encourage one to proceed from one subject to another in a numerically cyclical progression.  In this particular project there are some twenty aphoristic cycles, all of which are self-sufficient and yet also interrelated in what becomes a larger picture of an overall philosophy stretching, in sensibility, ever further onwards in the quest for ultimate truth and perfection.  I needn't elaborate on any of the subjects here, because most of them will have been explored to some degree in my work before; but I doubt whether I have ever written or, rather, composed, methodically and meticulously, anything better, least of all in relation to the complex philosophical and moral problems posed by the distinction of 'right' and 'wrong', which here undergo what I believe to be a morally 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 following 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 grandmother, he then went on to attend 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-cum-office-skills tutor at Hornsey Management Agency in 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).
