LOPSIDED CONVERSATIONS is volume one of a projected two-volume 'collected dialogues' by John O'Loughlin which moves from a relatively dramatic - even play-like - beginning towards a more systematically philosophical approach to the genre which, fittingly, culminates with an aphoristic appendix that both summarizes and crowns this immense literary project.

John O'Loughlin began writing dialogues in a play-like vein some time in 1976, two of which are included at the beginning of this collection, and soon progressed, via a study of Diderot and other French philosophers, to a more philosophical approach to the genre, which is amply documented in this first volume of a projected two volume 'collected dialogues'. The nineteen or so dialogues included here date from 1976-82 and become increasingly philosophical, in the sense of concerned with metaphysical and kindred issues, including ontology. Indeed, so much so that we have not hesitated to include, as with volume one of the author's 'collected essays', an aphoristic appendix, which properly follows the last seven dialogues, all of which were originally included in a collection entitled 'The Importance of Technology to the Transcendental Future; (1981-2). The title of this volume would seem to acknowledge the one-sided nature of many of the 'conversations' which take place in these dialogues, as though in deference to a teacher/pupil relationship biased towards didactic polemic and religious instruction. This is so as early as with 'A Dualistic Integrity' in which the participants, the characters, if you will, are simply described as 'professor' and 'student', and, the basic template once established, it was inevitable that Mr O'Loughlin should simply embellish and refine upon it in due course, even when there is a greater concern with characterization. The results, though fairly predictable, speak eloquently for themselves, insofar as it was on this basis that he gradually evolved towards the aphoristic purism characteristic of his mature philosophy, and accordingly became less relativistic and much more absolutely committed to the quest for metaphysical perfection. Such perfection may not be all that evident here, in this first volume of dialogues, but it was eventually to spring from them, as to some extent evidenced by the appendix.

This brief applies variations in poststructural thinking and practice to the field of family therapy. Poststructural thinking pervades the world of therapeutic practice in ways that are often invisible to both the theoretician as well as the practitioner. In this brief, the authors focus on what poststructuralism has brought to our understanding. What follows are chapters that speak to training and teaching principles as well as to practices that draw on ideas about “becoming,” “relationality,” and “the aesthetics of engagement." Each chapter builds on the other with the last one reprising a key component of narrative understanding. From a teaching institution in Auckland, NZ to an online training program in Minneapolis, from new thinking about “auto-ethnography” to a “de-centered” practice to “poetic” resistance, the chapters in this brief offer exciting ideas and practice possibilities.

Life is Filled with Decisions. Some significant. Some insigificant. Some momentous. Who to marry? Which job to take? Cream & sugar with your coffee, or drink it black? But is it possible that there are no insignificant decisions? Matt heaved a forkful of hay down just as the barn door opened, and a shadowed figure entered. He heard an unfamiliar cry of bewildered irritation that did not belong to one of his seven younger brothers or sisters. This was a woman's voice—young, and most definitely annoyed. In an instant, Matt was brushing hay off a young woman's shoulders. She wore a pale yellow dress dotted with yellow and green flowers with stylish puffed sleeves and a nipped-in waist that flattered her petite figure. Her red hair spilled out of its hair pins, leaving unruly curls all about her forehead. Matt was struck by the force of her beauty. The young woman blushed, then extended her hand. "I'm Anna, your brother Ernest's wife."
