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.
- 'Griffith gives us a genuinely original and inspiring way of understanding ourselves and our place in the universe.' Charles Birch, Emeritus Professor of Biology & Templeton Prize Winner - 'Beyond The Human Condition is a book about anthropology and the human future. So it is necessarily about Christianity and importantly relates it - as Christianity must ultimately be related - to biology. It is a forward view of humanity's moral progress and destiny...I believe it foresees the same vista as Teilhard de Chardin did in his more orthodox terms, which is in fact the consummation promised for humanity set free, in the Christian Gospel.' John Morton, Emeritus Professor of Zoology, Auckland University - 'Could you please send me an extra copy of your book? Yours to me is already out on loan because it was so appreciated' Sir Laurens van der Post, pre-eminent philosopher and author - 'Jeremy Griffith presented, Beyond the Human Condition, at a special Kenya Museum Society lecture. Once in a long while you come across an "aha" book. Every few pages of Jeremy Griffith's biological synthesis of human behaviour stretching back millions of years, I found myself, a scientific layman, saying, "aha, that makes sense!"' Swara, East African Wildlife Society magazine, Vol 16 No.2 - 'Griffith's concept is revolutionary because it reverses the process assumed by most scientists who are still searching history to discover when man developed a soul...his book is worth reading' Sydney University Gazette, Australia
