Towards the Supernoumenon
by John O'Loughlin


Overview - Carrying on from where 'From Materialism to Idealism' (1986) leaves off, this volume of supernotes, or loosely aphoristic material, is more intensely philosophical than its predecessor, as it introduces to the fourfold structures already established the concept of devolutionary/evolutionary antitheses into historical development, coupling this to an investigation of certain key historico-ontological philosophers, including Schopenhauer, and contrasting his noumenal-phenomenal approach to philosophy with what John O'Loughlin has called a superphenomenal-supernoumenal one intended to illustrate the distinction between 'artificial' modernity and 'naturalistic' antiquity, the former of which bears witness to what Nietzsche would have called a 'transvaluation of all values' to the extent that it would seem to be more omega-orientated than alpha-stemming.  Read more...

Overview
Carrying on from where 'From Materialism to Idealism' (1986) leaves off, this volume of supernotes, or loosely aphoristic material, is more intensely philosophical than its predecessor, as it introduces to the fourfold structures already established the concept of devolutionary/evolutionary antitheses into historical development, coupling this to an investigation of certain key historico-ontological philosophers, including Schopenhauer, and contrasting his noumenal-phenomenal approach to philosophy with what John O'Loughlin has called a superphenomenal-supernoumenal one intended to illustrate the distinction between 'artificial' modernity and 'naturalistic' antiquity, the former of which bears witness to what Nietzsche would have called a 'transvaluation of all values' to the extent that it would seem to be more omega-orientated than alpha-stemming. In this respect, it could be said to reflect a contrast between philosophy, as traditionally practised by alpha-stemming thinkers like Schopenhauer, and a radical concept of theosophy, in which an evolutionary drive towards the omega point of things is discernible on what may well be superphilosophical foundations.
