All the items - call them essayistic aphorisms - in this collection of revised and reformatted weblogs were originally hosted at Anoox.com in blog format and succeed a number of John O'Loughlin's other collections of weblogs both in date of composition (2009) and theoretical development, so that they might be regarded as the most advanced and conclusive project of its kind. In some instances, a fair amount of revision, including the incorporation of some additional material, has taken place, and the author is confident that this collection will bear out the claim to be revised and reformatted to an extent that warrants serious consideration as a book in itself, complete with a logically consistent structure and thematic bias that is nothing less than consummately metaphysical, or at any rate centred, truthfully, in the advancement of metaphysics at the expense of whatever is either contrary to or beneath metaphysics. It that respect, this is as definitive a statement of truth as one is likely to get from Mr O'Loughlin, who is confident that the title 'The Centre of Truth' will resolve his long struggle, over several decades, to advance the cause of truth in relation to the centre through a succession of 'centretruths', about which he has written in some detail.

About the Author
John O'Loughlin is a London-based author who was born in Ireland of an English mother and grew up first in Hampshire and then in 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 River 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.

The centre of Truth based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
This is about as near to the 'centre of truth' as one can intellectually get, and the author should be commended for having persevered so long with formative stages of his truth-seeking to have written so confidently about such an elusive subject here in what is, by any standards, one of his better books.
