One of the most inspiring elements in discovering these breakthrough biological ideas has been seeing Jeremy Griffith’s honest passion for his work, the research, and how he’s not given up; seeing what he’s done and what he’s trying to do for the world and how relentless he is in just keeping on going.
Jeremy Griffith is an Australian biologist and author who has dedicated his life to understanding and explaining the human condition, our species’ capacity for what has been termed ‘good’ and ‘evil’. Thanks to Jeremy's profound insight and commitment, we now have the scientific explanation for our contradictory and divisive behavior, which means we can finally free ourselves of all the guilt, insecurity and uncertainty, and in turn transform ourselves and the world!
Jeremy first came to public attention for his attempts to find the now extinct Tasmanian Tiger, and later for his six books on the human condition, the first in 1988. His 2003 book, A Species In Denial, became an Australasian bestseller, while in June 2016 his definitive treatment on the subject, FREEDOM: The End Of The Human Condition, was launched at the Royal Geographical Society in London, with presentations from renowned mountaineer Tim Macartney-Snape and acclaimed humanitarian Sir Bob Geldof. The World Transformation Movement is a not-for-profit organization that was established in 1983 to support analysis of the human condition.
Writings published by Jeremy Griffith
Each of Jeremy's published works is grounded in his first-principle-based biological explanation of human behavior. His work is multi-disciplinary, and has been described as 'grand narrative' in approach, drawing from the physical sciences, biology, anthropology, and primatology together with philosophy, psychology, and psychiatry. He cites thinkers from all backgrounds and eras, from Socrates, Plato, and Christ, through to more contemporary philosophers and scientists, such as Charles Darwin, Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, R.D. Laing, Louis Leakey, Jan Smuts, Eugene Marais, Olive Schreiner and Sir Laurens van der Post.
It is important to note here that by definition all new ideas threaten the status quo and are therefore typically resisted. However, no new idea is as revolutionizing and thus threatening of the status quo as analysis and explanation of the human condition. This is because the status quo, or prevailing attitude, has been to cope with the until now unexplained and thus unbearably depressing issue of our species’ human condition by living in almost complete denial of it. It follows that Jeremy’s explanation of the human condition has attracted resistance, sometimes vehement resistance.
