WHO IS JEREMY GRIFFITH?

World-leading biologist Jeremy Griffith

The Australian biologist Jeremy Griffith has dedicated his life to bringing fully accountable, biological explanation to the dilemma of the human condition—how do we explain our species’ extraordinary capacity for what has been called ‘good’ and ‘evil’.

Raised on a ranch in Australia, Jeremy Griffith was educated at one of the most highly regarded schools in the world (Prince Charles attended the same school for part of his education) where he gained first class honours in biology.

Jeremy began his science degree in 1966 before deferring his studies determined to save a remarkable Australian animal—the ‘Tasmanian Tiger’—that appeared to be nearing extinction. His search was to last more than six years but sadly Jeremy was to conclude that the Tiger was indeed extinct. The quest generated documentaries and articles around the world including in the American Museum of Natural History’s journal, Natural History.

In 1971 Jeremy completed his BSc in zoology at the University of Sydney and in the following years established a highly successful business to sustain his research and writing into the human condition. At the age of 27, on realizing that what was needed in the world was a deeper understanding of ourselves, Jeremy turned his full attention to the issue of the human condition, a study that has remained his life’s focus for the last 40 years.

Jeremy started writing about the human condition in 1975, established the World Transformation Movement (WTM) in 1983 (which is dedicated to the study and amelioration of the human condition), published his first book, Free: The End Of The Human Condition, in 1988, and since then, many more, including the 2004 bestseller, A Species In Denial, and in 2016 his "summa masterpiece", FREEDOM: The End Of The Human Condition.
