Description of this Book

Written after 'The Soul of Being' (1998), this further step in John O'Loughlin's philosophical or, as he now prefers to think of it, superphilosophical (theosophical?) journey brings us, via twenty-three headed sections numbered afresh in each case, to 'The Core of the Self', the holy grail of self-fulfilment which lies at journey's end as its heavenly reward. Although principally concerned, like the previous book, with the Self, this work does more justice to the totality of the Self, including for virtually the first time the id, which it analyses both in relation to the self as a whole and to modern society, with particular reference to the West. The id, however, isn't the holy grail of self-fulfilment for Mr O'Loughlin but, rather, the antithesis of the soul which needs to be guarded against and, if possible, transcended in favour of that path which truly leads to 'The Core of the Self'. Let the reader judge for himself as to the success of his journey and the sincerity of his conclusions!

Author's Bio

John O'Loughlin is a Galway-born author who, like W.B. Yeats, was brought from Ireland to England as a young boy and grew up in Hampshire and Surrey, where he attended a variety of state schools. Most of his adult life has been spent in north London, 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.
