From Superfluous Man to Superman: Revised and Reformatted Weblogs

John O'Loughlin

All the pieces in this third collection of revised and reformatted weblogs originally hosted by Wordpress.com date from 2011. With this collection the author has been careful to ensure that the original chronology of weblogs has been replicated, so that one can proceed through the material with a growing sense of continuity and even thematic enhancement, two crucial advantages of book publication over what may often appear to be the disjunctive if not chronologically unrelated nature of blogging. Even so, he has usually tended to approach weblogs from a standpoint centred in his metaphysically-oriented philosophy of Social Transcendentalism and intended to achieve some kind of thematic continuity in spite of the formal limitations of blogging, and we believe that, here as in previous such compilations, he has largely succeeded in producing a body of work that not only adds up, but also seems quite inter-related and even cohesive, partly because few of his weblogs were ever written in situ but usually derive from prior notes which he was then able to copy-in and upgrade or ‘beef up’, preparatory to downloading them to a local file which would subsequently serve as the basis, following revision, for a new eBook and/or physical book. Hopefully, this one is as good as if not better than each of the previous books, including its immediate precursor, ‘Musings of a Superfluous Man’, and should serve to show, moreover, that a man who sees himself as being superfluous in and/or to one kind of society may well prove of superhuman and, more particularly, supermasculine significance to himself which the type of society he inhabits would be unable to comprehend, much less appreciate.
