Christmas in the Doghouse By John O'Loughlin
eBook (PDF): $9.08
An aphoristic philosophy project which includes some short prose and the occasional poetic treatment of aphorisms, as well as being autobiographical and journalistic, in keeping with the author's... More > customary eclectic approach to text, which rarely deviates, however, from his underlining philosophical bias towards transcendentalism.< Less
The Fourfold Composition of Elements and Pseudo-Elements in Axial Perspective By John O'Loughlin
eBook (ePub): $9.08
An aphoristic philosophy project which becomes more intensely philosophic - and quasi-musical - as it progresses through some eight parts, gradually homing-in on the focus of the title, which is an... More > investigation of the subatomic components of each of the elements and pseudo-elements described in the text together with their correlative and axial relationships in the overall structure of each axis upon what John O'Loughlin customarily describes as the inter-cardinal axial compass. This title effectively brings the author's philosophical quest to a highly and deeply metaphysical resolution while still providing a fair degree of literary discursiveness coupled to autobiographical material along the at times thorny way.< Less
Atoms and Pseudo-Atoms By John O'Loughlin
eBook (ePub): $9.10
An intensely metaphysical work of aphoristic philosophy with a fresh take on atoms and what the author has called 'pseudo-atoms'in relation to axial polarity coupled to gender and class... More > differentiation. This title marks a radical step beyond his previous thoughts on the subject, albeit one which derives from prior material and has been able to build upon it to a groundbreaking extent. Brings a whole new dimension to the concept 'subatomic'.< Less
Stations of the Supercross By John O'Loughlin
eBook (ePub): $11.70
A book with twelve 'stations' in several sections that is both autobiographical and philosophical, with a keenly metaphysical approach to the thorny subject of 'truth', and an original 'take' on... More > subatomic definitions which logically follows from John O'Loughlin's previous title 'Atoms and Pseudo-Atoms in Subatomic Perspective', further extending his sense of the relationship between attraction and reaction on a gender basis that applies to any given 'pairing' on what he terms the intercardinal axial compass, a term with which the student of this writer's mature philosophy should by now be familiar, especially since it is crucial to his structural comprehensiveness and overall philosophical perspective.< Less
Supercrossed By John O'Loughlin
eBook (ePub): $11.71
Even by John O'Loughlin's unique structurally-exacting philosophical standards this is an exceptionally-demanding work, the logical comprehensiveness of which actually surpasses, on a more radical... More > basis, the best of what has already been achieved in the previous title, 'Stations of the Supercross', largely with the benefit of a number of theoretical modifications which have been brought to bear on the overall fourfold frameworks which, as before, encompass both atoms and pseudo-atoms in any given pairing, or 'complementarity', to use the author's preferred term, which may be presumed to exist in axial polarity with either a noumenal or a phenomenal, an ethereal or a corporeal, counterpart within both church-hegemonic and state-hegemonic parameters.< Less
Black Sabbaticals By John O'Loughlin
eBook (ePub): $9.16
Few books can have undergone so many re-evaluations as this one, which has developed a fresh approach to terms which the author was apt to take for granted in recent years, never imagining that, one... More > day, they would undergo such extensive re-evaluation as has transpired in this, arguably his most comprehensively exacting and significant work to-date, the overall significance of which is also due to the way in which certain antitheses, like life and death, heathen and Christian, energy and gravity, etc., have been interpreted from a standpoint owing more to philosophical logic than might at first seem to be the case, with highly credible conclusions.< Less
Prophet Over Profit By John O'Loughlin
eBook (ePub): $11.77
A Metaphysically-biased argument couched in the form of a journal that analyses the relationships between atoms and what the author calls pseudo-atoms on a variety of levels, including the human,... More > from their gender-dichotomous foundations right through to class interpretations of atomic and pseudo-atomic structures that underpin not only disciplinary but, so the author contends, ethnic differences within divergent approaches to civilization and its struggle against barbarism. Not only is this John O'Loughlin's most technically complex work to date, it is arguably also his most thematically compelling, since the arguments it propounds in favour of Metaphysics are so firmly grounded in philosophical logic that even the sceptical or otherwise cynical should be convinced of their veracity.< Less
Book of Replicated Thought By John O'Loughlin
eBook (ePub): $6.37
By seeming to combine, in separate parts, prose with philosophy, this project strives to appeal, one might say, to both lower- and upper-class taste to the extent that it juxtaposes, in the one book,... More > two dissimilar approaches to textual structure without, however, unduly departing from its grammatical bias and the affirmation, in consequence, of a discriminatory upper-case approach (depending on class context) to terminology. Now while more people might be expected to prefer the 'prose' to the 'philosophy', irrespective of its grammatical predilections, the option on both approaches to textual presentation not only brings 'heaven' down to 'earth' but simultaneously ensures that what pertains to the former can be transmuted into the latter, transfigured, so to speak, with intent to providing the right kind of axial paradigm for any transcendence of 'the world' likely to culminate in a heavenly disposition.< Less
Keys to the Kingdom of Truth By John O'Loughlin
eBook (ePub): $12.77
This is not a book for 'the Many', but one for a few of 'the Few' who will lead most of 'the Many' into the 'Kingdom of Truth'. This, to put it mildly, is one of the crowning achievements of John... More > O'Loughlin's philosophical oeuvre, of his quest for philosophical perfection through the pursuance and comprehension of Truth, whether interpreted specifically in relation to Metaphysics or more generally in relation to each of the atomic and pseudo-atomic options, and one can only add that if there was ever a book more comprehensively exacting and logically and stylistically consistent within terminological frameworks that are often unique, then it would have to be this one. For books like this are the end-product of decades of intellectual progress which, by dint of their highly complex nature, can only appeal, as noted above, to a small minority of people, albeit to those who value Truth (in whatever sense) above all else.< Less
So There By John O'Loughlin
eBook (ePub): $13.06
As with other titles by John O'Loughlin, this particular work tends to utilize both aphorisms discursively and maxims sequentially in a kind of compromise between contrasting approaches to his... More > philosophical writing, the one more literary and the other more technical, with some material of an autobiographical nature included for good measure, as also in an attempt to clarify his situation as a self-styled intellectual whose 'journey' to such an advanced realization of his thinking did not happen overnight or without considerable effort both personally and in relation to whatever obstacles domestic and/or environmental circumstances may have thrown in his/its way, not least in respect of this book's understanding of Western civilization and its relationships to both decadence and degeneration, as discussed at some length in the text.< Less
