Description

Dealing with essentially the same subject-matter as its precursor, 'Revelationary Afterthoughts' (2003), this further example of aphoristic philosophy by John O'Loughlin is even more exactingly insightful in its understanding of the differences between the 'eternal' freedoms that rule or lead and the temporal bindings that submit, in worldly fashion, to the alternative dispensations so antithetically ranged above them, whether in contemporary or traditional guise. Here there is no question but that the worldly division between what has been called 'the meek' and 'the just' is symptomatic of two entirely different and largely independent axial orientations, an ascending axis of church-hegemonic criteria and a descending axis of state-hegemonic criteria, and that the salvation of those who meekly appertain to the former is crucial to the undermining if not, eventually, complete invalidation of the latter.show more

About John O'Loughlin

John O'Loughlin is a London-based author who was born in Ireland to 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.show more
