The Ideological Philosophy of Social Transcendentalism By John O'Loughlin
eBook (ePub): $11.01
'The Ideological Philosophy of Social Transcendentalism' is the next eBook after 'Revolutions & Revelations' (1997), and, like its precursor, it takes the form of an aphoristically cyclical text... More > that spirals towards a summit of philosophical truth, more or less metaphysical in nature. Most of John O'Loughlin's characteristic quadruplicities are reviewed here, but they invariably lead to new vistas of logical insight in frameworks that owe something, though by no means everything, to the four basic Elements, viz. fire, water, earth (vegetation), and air. The cover shows one of the author's Social Transcendentalist emblems, which were designed with a view to resurrecting and transmuting the CND emblem with intent to metaphysically establishing the form of a 'supercross', appropriate to the ideological bias of the philosophy in question.< Less
A Perfect Resolution By John O'Loughlin
eBook (ePub): $6.70
'A Perfect Resolution' corrects certain of what the author regards as the 'heathenistic' ('secular' in contemporary parlance) aberrations of its aphoristic precursor, 'Stairway to Judgement', as it... More > exposes the extent to which moral criteria are significantly dependent upon the nature of the society of which they are a part, and of how this, in turn, is conditioned by gender factors which determine its axial direction and integrity, for better or for worse, which is to say, within church- or state-hegemonic parameters. Yet this title is not, on that account, 'straitlaced' but a frank examination of the conflicting options and their likely destinies.< Less
Apotheosis of the Gnosis By John O'Loughlin
eBook (ePub): $6.35
APOTHEOSIS OF THE GNOSIS fairly lives up to its name or, rather, title in terms of the extent to which it both draws the various strands of the ideological philosophy of Social Transcendentalism... More > together and achieves fresh insights into key positions that take this philosophy to new and altogether unprecedented heights of metaphysical understanding and ontological certitude. A must for idealists and serious students of religion.< Less
The Last Judgement By John O'Loughlin
eBook (ePub): $6.69
'The Last Judgement', a title with evident eschatological implications, advances the ideological philosophy of Social Transcendentalism by highlighting the extent to which gender conditions axial... More > divergence and the relativity of both moral and social values in such fashion that nothing can be definitively understood - and therefore judged - without a thorough grasp of these axial fundamentals, which put civilization - and Western traditions not least of all - at loggerheads with itself on what traditionally would have been a Catholic/Protestant basis. Essentially reading for anyone sensitive to ethnic differentials and convinced of the desirability of clinging, no matter how tangentially in this day and age, to a given denominational tradition.< Less
Ethnic Universality - The Next Totalitarianism By John O'Loughlin
eBook (ePub): $6.70
'Ethnic Universality - The Next Totalitarianism' ... is about the promise of globalization and the universal oneness that it portends if taken to a sensible conclusion. In that respect, it is the... More > antithesis of anything cosmic and, in particular, stellar, with an abstract as opposed to concrete basis that is necessarily centred in psyche.< Less
The Classless Solution By John O'Loughlin
eBook (ePub): $6.70
'The Classless Solution' is not a classless re-run of Marxism even though it insists that classlessness - to use a rather negative term - is metaphysical and therefore only intelligible within the... More > elemental context of metaphysics. Neither is it a re-run of Marxism in terms of its understanding and explanation of how civilization advances, which is investigated here for the first time in a way that will be taken up again in subsequent books, like the three with 'dialectics' in the title, and clarified or consummated, as the case may be. The cover art, incidentally, derives from one of the author's own 'Square and Circle' abstracts and intimates of structural possibilities that are both metaphysical and, in the case of the square motif, less than metaphysical and therefore not capable of being subsumed within the definition 'classless'.< Less
The Virtuous Circles By John O'Loughlin
eBook (ePub): $6.35
'The Virtuous Circles' is all about involutional sensibility as a male-led factor appertaining to both physics and, especially, metaphysics, where virtue, as shorthand for gender fidelity, or 'sync',... More > is most perfect, albeit most difficult of attainment in a world rooted in its opposite - namely, metachemistry and the prevalence, in consequence, of concrete criteria. The cover shows a circular abstract painting by the author, which he would regard as somehow apposite to the thesis of this text.< Less
No Man-Oeuvre By John O'Loughlin
eBook (ePub): $6.31
'No Man-Oeuvre' is a further example of John O'Loughlin's aphoristic philosophy in full Social Transcendentalist flight towards an ideological and/or ontological summit, and the title aptly puns the... More > connection between godliness and righteousness, as if to say such a work is above and beyond the scope of 'man', or humanisic limitations. The cover shows a detail from the Joyce Roundabout in Galway City, the Republic of Ireland, taken by the author in 2010.< Less
Revolutionary Afterthoughts By John O'Loughlin
eBook (ePub): $6.70
This is the companion of and sequel to 'Revelationary Afterthoughts' (2003) and, like what precedes it, the subject-matter is particularly focused on axial relativity not only with regard to the... More > distinctions between what have been called 'the above' and 'the below', but also between those across the axial divide who, though commonly bound, remain symptomatic of independent and incompatible traditions which can only be transcended or modified on the basis outlined in the text of what is, by any standards, another compellingly cogent example of aphoristic philosophy at or near its best.< Less
Judgemental Afterthoughts By John O'Loughlin
eBook (ePub): $6.70
'Judgemental Afterthoughts' concludes a loose trilogy of volumes of aphoristic philosophy beginning and continuing with 'Revelationary Afterthoughts' and 'Revolutionary Afterthoughts', and the... More > 'afterthoughts' here are the product of an author who is not above investigating common slang and verb/noun expletives from a standpoint that, adhering to a broader framework, is able to pinpoint and categorize them with a view not only to exposing the class or gender limitations of their reductionist usage but, hopefully, undermining the mindless alacrity with which certain persons so utilize them. But these 'judgemental afterthoughts' are also quite eschatological at times, and one should not approach to eBook without a sense of religious destiny.< Less
