Australian biologist and author, Jeremy Griffith

Born in 1945, and raised on a farm in Australia, Jeremy matriculated with first class honors in biology and in 1965 began a science degree at the University of New England.Deferring his studies in 1967, Jeremy hitchhiked to the small island off the south coast of Australia, Tasmania, determined to save the Thylacine—the Tasmanian Tiger—from extinction. The search was to last more than six years—the most thorough investigation ever into the plight of the Tasmanian Tiger—but sadly concluded it was indeed extinct. Read more about Jeremy Griffith’s Remarkable Search for the Tasmanian Tiger.


In 1971, Jeremy completed his Bachelor of Science in zoology at the University of Sydney. The following year he established a highly successful business manufacturing furniture based on his own simple and natural designs called Griffith Tablecraft.


It was during this time that Jeremy realised that trying to save animals from extinction or trying to build ideal furniture wasn’t addressing the real issue behind the imperfection in life, which is human behaviour. He realised that what was really needed in the world was a deeper understanding of ourselves. So it was this issue of our species’ less-than-ideal behaviour, that Jeremy turned his attention—a study that has remained his life’s focus.


Jeremy started writing about the human condition in 1975, establishing the non-profit organisation, World Transformation Movement (WTM) in 1983. He is the author of numerous books on the subject of the human condition, including the bestseller, A Species In Denial. His 2016 book, FREEDOM: The End Of The Human Condition is his definitive presentation of the biological explanation of the human condition needed for the complete understanding of human behaviour and the ultimate amelioration of all the underlying psychosis in human life.
