Summary of the Concept Part One - The Human Condition Part Two - The Unevasive Scientific Story of the Ascent of Humanity Part Three - Conclusion
Australian biologist Jeremy Griffith, born in 1945, was raised on a sheep station in NSW, Australia, educated at Geelong Grammar School in Victoria, Australia and later graduated in biology from Sydney University. He spent six years in the wilds of Tasmania where he undertook the most thorough investigation ever into the plight of the Tasmanian Tiger. During this time Jeremy shifted his exploratory focus to humanity, which has remained his life objective. Jeremy is a patron of the World Transformation Movement (WTM), a non-profit organisation dedicated to promoting analysis of the human condition. He is the author of five books and his work has received endorsements from many of the world's leading scientists.
'The reason why most of us wouldn't write such a book, along with all the other questions and problems faced by humanity are answered in Free: The End of The Human Condition...In tracing all our environmental, social and political problems back to basic human psychology, Griffith provides a new way of looking at the world...His ideas are in a class of their own.' Arena, Macquarie University, Australia 'The content is a rare combination of philosophy, comparative religion, biology and very genuine reflection on the state of mankind and womankind...It examines, too, the conflict between conscience and intellect - the biological reasons and effects, and the guilt this brought on us as we developed the concepts of "good" and "evil"...Importantly, the author examines why the "war" between the sexes developed during humanity's "adolescence" and how this understanding of the necessary "growing up" can free us.' Dr John Champness, Australian psychologist and educator 'Griffith's grasp of biology and physics places him in the tradition of Teilhard de Chardin and Ilya Prigogine. But he goes beyond this...proclaiming that all our past divisive behaviour was a necessary phase of "human adolescence".' The Canadian Journal Edges, Vol 1, No.3 'Was Jeremy Griffith struck by lightning on the road to Damascus...Such was my cynicism reading the summary...Then whack! Wham! Reading on. I was increasingly impressed and then converted by his erudite explanation for society's competitive and self-destructive behaviour.' Executive Woman's Report, Vol 1 No. 16
