Jeremy Griffith (b. 1945) is an Australian biologist who has dedicated his life to bringing fully accountable, biological understanding to the dilemma of the human condition — the underlying issue in all human life of our species’ extraordinary capacity for what has been called ‘good’ and ‘evil’.
Since writing his first book Free: The End Of The Human Condition in 1988, Jeremy has written a further seven books including A Species In Denial in 2003, which was a bestseller in Australia and New Zealand. In 2016 Jeremy's latest and most definitive book, FREEDOM: The End of the Human Condition, was launched in London at the Royal Geographical Society.
Jeremy Griffith’s books have attracted the support of such eminent scientists in the field as Australia’s Templeton Prize-winning biologist Professor Charles Birch and New Zealand’s then foremost zoologist Professor John Morton, as well as other distinguished thinkers such as Sir Laurens van der Post.
A proposal to make a documentary about the human condition, The Human Condition Documentary Proposal, which Jeremy wrote the synopses for, received over 100 endorsements from many of the world’s leading scientists and thinkers, including professors Stephen Hawking and Nobel Laureate Charles H. Townes.
