Questions & Answers
Who is Jeremy Griffith?
Born in 1945 and raised on a sheep station (ranch) in rural New South Wales, Australia, Griffith was educated at Geelong Grammar School in Victoria 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, concluding that it was extinct. During this time, aged 27, Jeremy shifted his exploratory focus to humanity, which has remained his life’s preoccupation for the last 40 years. He started writing about the human condition in 1975, established the World Transformation Movement in 1983 (originally established as the Foundation for Humanity’s Adulthood), published his first book, Free: The End of the Human Condition in 1988, his second book, Beyond the Human Condition in 1991, and his bestselling third book, A Species In Denial, in 2004.
What is the human condition?
