Lamb and Anti-Lion
Taking its thematic structure from the author's previous book of aphoristic philosophy, Yang and Anti-Yin (2004-5), this title delves deeper into what he calls 'noumenal sensibility' and its full gender and ideological implications, taking the biblical metaphors of 'lamb' and 'lion' to their ultimate conclusions in what becomes an exact parallel to the 'yang' and 'anti-yin' of our metaphysical and antimetachemical elemental positions. But these elements are also investigated in greater detail, and provide ample scope for the enhancement or clarification of certain terms, including those with other elemental affinities than that with which we are chiefly concerned here. Thus a broadening-out from the central or core position of John O'Loughlin's philosophy is once again to the fore, and other positions are accordingly re-evaluated and modified in the light of his principal contentions.

About John O'Loughlin
John O'Loughlin is a London-based author who was born in Ireland of an English mother and grew up first in Hampshire and then in Surrey, where he attended a variety of state schools. Most of his adult life has been spent at different addresses in the London Borough of Haringey, north of the River Thames, to which he moved from Surrey in 1974, and all but a few of his books have been written there, the majority of which, like this one, are of an intensely philosophical not to say metaphysical and even ideological nature.
