9780646039947: Beyond the Human Condition

Jeremy Griffith’s' second book gives a detailed account of the biology underpinning the explanation of the human condition. It examines issues such as science & religion, politics and psychiatry. Griffith’s treatise defends and dignifies humans, it lifts the burden of guilt, making possible our species’ psychological rehabilitation. With a Foreword by twice-honoured Order of Australia recipient and renowned mountaineer Tim Macartney-Snape AM, who says of the book: "‘Griffith’s explanations have clarified so much that was inexplicable about myself and what goes on in the world. It is like having mist lift from country you’'ve never seen in clear weather. This book could well have as much impact on humanity as the Bible.’"

From the Author:

This book is dedicated to the vision of Sir Laurens van der Post:
'... for I had a private hope of the utmost importance to me. The Bushman's physical shape combined those of a child and a man: I surmised that examination of his inner life might reveal a pattern which reconciled the spiritual opposites in the human being and made him whole ... it might start the first movement towards a reconciliation.'
Laurens van der Post, The Heart of the Hunter, 1961.

And that of Sir James Darling who acknowledged that:
'...the future lies not with the predatory and the immune but with the sensitive who live dangerously...the truly sensitive mind is both susceptible and penetrating: it is open to new ideas, and it seeks truth at the bottom of the well. It is the development of this sort of mind which it should be the object of the educational process to cultivate.'
James Darling, The Education of a Civilized Man, 1962.
 
And that of Dr Louis Leakey who believed:
'... that knowledge of the past would help us to understand and possibly control the future.'
Mentioned by Dr Mary Leakey in her book Disclosing the Past, 1984.

From the Back Cover:

Charles Darwin connected humans with nature but there biology has been stalled, unable to explain the human condition, the riddle of human nature, our capacity for good and evil. Astonishingly, it is this biological question of questions that Jeremy Griffith has answered. Paradoxically his answer dignifies humans in the most remarkable way. It lifts the burden of guilt.
This book presents the understanding sorely needed for our species' psychological rehabilitation; the real repair of ourselves and of our planet.
This is the breakthrough humanity has yearned for and worked towards unceasingly, against immense odds since our conscious mind emerged 2 million years ago.


'At the core of Jeremy Griffith's argument lies a brilliantly original insight into the basic nature of human conflict, which could provide the desperately needed clue to personal and social renewal at this ultimate crisis point in human history'. -- Professor John Wren-Lewis, founder of the Association of Humanistic Psychology in the U.K.

'Was Jeremy Griffith struck by lightening on the road to Damascus...Such was my [initial] cynicism...Then whack! Wham! Reading on...I was increasingly impressed and then converted by his erudite explanation for society's competitive and self-destructive behaviour.' -- The Executive Woman's Report
