Read full description of the books:



In his revolutionary bestseller Australian biologist Jeremy Griffith addresses the crux issue of the human condition, our capacity for good and evil, describing how humans have coped by living in denial of it. He explains the biological reason for the human condition, thus ending the need for the denial & maturing humanity to psychological freedom.

A Species in Denial received many editorial reviews, reproduced below:

‘A Species In Denial is a superb book…[that] brings out the truth of a new and wider frontier for humankind, a forward view of a world of humans no longer in naked competition amongst ourselves and with all others.’
The late Professor John Morton, Emeritus Professor of Zoology & Lay Canon Emeritus of Holy Trinity Cathedral

‘This book is a fascinating stimulus to further work and, above all, spur toward better things. There are not many books offering as much, and few indeed which single out the often neglected prophets of our recent past. It offers so many insights into our divided selves.’
Ronald Conway, OAM, Australian Quarterly Journal of Contemporary Analysis
________________________________________

‘A book that confronts the way we think about life...People like [Griffith] used to be drummed out of town by the vicar...Griffith gives the serious reader plenty to ponder...There is never any doubt of the courage of [Griffith’s] stance in writing this book because of his commitment to his fellow man and the future of the planet.’
Pat White, Wairarapa News, New Zealand

‘This well reviewed book will challenge its readers. John Morton speaks of the truth it offers as people move forward into a deeper spirituality. Those who like philosophy will love reading this.’
Council for Christian Nurture & Ciocesan Resource Library

‘10/10. Prepare to be confronted...Prepare to be enlightened.'
Wendy O’Hanlon, Noosa Times

‘Jeremy Griffith is an Australian biologist but his range of interests and his store of knowledge seem almost infinite… The chapter called Resignation is brilliant in its insight into human nature and what we call the idealism of the young… It’s worth reading the book for this essay alone but, of course, there’s so much more. Those who need brain food will find it here. It can’t be said of many books that the world looks different after you’ve read them. It can be said of this book.’
Antonia Hilderbrand, Toowoomba Chronicle

‘There is no doubt that Jeremy is talking about the big stuff.’
Katie Wilkie, The Land's 'Friday Magazine'

‘ANY book claiming to shed light on that all-confronting yet persistently evasive subject, the human condition, is usually worth a look. Jeremy Griffith’s A Species In Denial is no exception. In fact, it is a must-read for anyone vaguely interested in the subject of who we are and what we are doing on this earth…a heroic work.’
David Steel, Townsville Bulletin
________________________________________

‘There is no doubt that this book is an important one and breathtaking in its breadth…the psychological and biological stages of life are examined with great insight…For thinking adolescents and beyond.’
John Cohen, Reading Time

‘Like to improve your understanding of the human condition? Ever wondered about our contradictory capacity for good and evil? Jeremy Griffith, an Australian biologist, believes he has the answer to the riddle of humanity. To why humanity’s progress is stalled in a state of unknowing. To how human intellect and instinct produce psychological conflict. 
A Species In Denial, with a foreword by Charles Birch, traverses wide ground indeed. From deciphering Plato’s cave allegory, to human denial, to bringing peace to the war between the sexes, to the denial-free history of the human race and the demystification of religion.’
John McConnell, The Sydney Institute Quarterly
________________________________________

‘A SPECIES in Denial is a continuation of Jeremy Griffith’s previous’ Beyond the Human Condition which I reviewed when first published, as making a landmark in the understanding of the present crises in human relationships both at the personal level and in crosscultural affairs. Now Jeremy makes significant advances through the work of the FHA - the Foundation for Humanities Adulthood. His references are wide ranging from the teachings of early philosophers to modern day scientists.’
Dr Champness, The Geelong Advertisern
________________________________________

'Why did the strong always crush the weak? Why did we hate and kill and torture?…this book will provide [you with] some answers.’
John C. F. Burnside, Taupo Weekender
________________________________________

‘Griffith believes that conflict between our genetic, instinctive, selves and our conscious, intellectual, selves causes us to suffer from a guilt which manifests itself as selfishness and aggression, or what he calls “divisive behaviour’.
Richard Edmondson, Northern News
________________________________________

‘A seminal book about how humans have coped with the psychological burden of their contradictory mindset…a must read for all…most rewarding.’
Helen Bissland, Southland Times
________________________________________

‘This is a big book with plenty of material to startle, stimulate, possibly explain or even demystify the ethereal concept the author calls the “human condition”. It’s well worth the read.’
Joe Herman, The Northern Advocate
________________________________________

‘AUSTRALIAN biologist Jeremy Griffith asks a deceptively simple question: Why are we what we are? But it is the complexity of the answer that makes for such compelling reading in Griffith’s book A Species in Denial. A Species in Denial is a challenging work, one that has already been highly-acclaimed.’
Michael Jacobson, The Gold Coast Bulletin

‘There is a lot to think about in this book [requiring] a second or even third reading.’
Stephen Mitchell, The Timaru Herald
