Description of this Book

Building on the structural comprehensiveness achieved in 'The Myth of Equality' (2001), this volume of aphoristic philosophy returns us to the concept of the so-called 'Triadic Beyond', and explains the distinction, hitherto unstressed in the author's work, between primary and secondary forms of both salvation and damnation, according to denominational predisposition and gender affiliation, within the subdivisions of any given tier. It also builds upon the dichotomy between nature and psyche in both sensuality and sensibility, as introduced in the earlier title, to explain, in greater detail, why either nature conditions psyche or, more sensibly, psyche conditions nature. Of course, the author openly acknowledges the extent to which gender factors-in to the distinction between 'free nature' and 'free psyche', but suggests that, through environmental progress, we have the ability to change the relationship of the one to the other in the interests of a more sensible outcome. Finally, he reaffirms his opposition to religious affiliations based on psychic determinism (binding), and argues in favour of the environmental justification for an ultimate religious manifestation, within the triadic framework alluded to above, of psychic freedom, simultaneously restating the terms and means by which this could officially be brought to pass.

Author's Bio

John O'Loughlin is a Galway-born author who was brought from Ireland to England by his mother 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 at different addresses in the London Borough of Haringey, north of the 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.
