Magnus Dei
by John O'Loughlin


Overview - With a title that is obviously a pun on 'Agnus Dei', this eighteenth example of John O'Loughlin's cyclical philosophy expands on 'The Right to Sanity' (2000), its immediate predecessor, to embrace a deeper analysis of the distinction between 'right' and 'wrong', or immorality and morality, and does so in relation to a number of dichotomous contexts, including sensuality and sensibility, competition and co-operation, insanity and sanity, race and culture.  Read more...

Overview
With a title that is obviously a pun on 'Agnus Dei', this eighteenth example of John O'Loughlin's cyclical philosophy expands on 'The Right to Sanity' (2000), its immediate predecessor, to embrace a deeper analysis of the distinction between 'right' and 'wrong', or immorality and morality, and does so in relation to a number of dichotomous contexts, including sensuality and sensibility, competition and co-operation, insanity and sanity, race and culture. In fact, this text delves into the European racial dichotomy - notwithstanding the existence of Slavs and Latins - between Nordic and Celtic, and seeks to deduce certain moral distinctions between the two races, as well as to compare them with the generality of darker races on this planet from what the author contends, on the basis of metaphorical illustrations, to have traditionally been an environmentally more-favoured cultural standpoint. Not least of the subjects under investigation here is the distinction between immanence and transcendence, which few thinkers before him would seem to have treated with the subtlety and profundity it deserves.
