'Judgemental Afterthoughts' brings to a 'judgemental' head the loose quartet of aphoristic books beginning with 'The Free Testament' (2003), and has been subtitled 'As Testamentary Evidence of a Free Genius', since it rather departs from the terminological bounds set by the aforementioned book, not to mention the two intervening ones, 'Revelationary Afterthoughts' (2003) and 'Revolutionary Afterthoughts' (2003-4), as it explores, in some detail, the use and applicability of common slang and verb-noun expletives from a comprehensively exacting philosophical standpoint, with many interesting and novel conclusions, some of which might well contribute towards undermining the mindless alacrity with which certain uneducated persons go about denigrating others in carnally reductionist terms! Consequently the author has, in a sense, 'judged' such terms, however irrational their common usage, and, we trust, brought some logical sense to bear on them, thereby removing their habitual usage from the pit of vulgar or obscene slang in which they tend, with unthinking people, to languish and fester. But that is not all he has done in this highly demanding book; for the reader will soon discern that John O'Loughlin has a gift for parables and metaphorical irony which should shed some light on recent history and the contemporary political scene most especially, thereby preparing the ground for progressive, radical change in the decades and centuries to come.
