FREEDOM has its own very informative website: visit www.humancondition.com
The fastest growing realization everywhere is that humanity can't go on the way it is going. Indeed, the great fear is we're entering endgame where we appear to have lost the race between self-destruction and self-discovery―the race to find the psychologically relieving understanding of our 'good and evil'-afflicted human condition. Well, astonishing as it is, this book by biologist Jeremy Griffith presents the 11th hour breakthrough biological explanation of the human condition necessary for the psychological rehabilitation and transformation of our species!
The culmination of 40 years of studying and writing about our species' psychosis, FREEDOM delivers nothing less than the holy grail of insight we have needed to free ourselves from the human condition. It is, in short, as Professor Harry Prosen, a former president of the Canadian Psychiatric Association, asserts in his Introduction, 'The book that saves the world'.
Griffith has been able to venture right to the bottom of the dark depths of what it is to be human and return with the fully accountable, true explanation of our seemingly imperfect lives. At long last we have the redeeming and thus transforming understanding of human behaviour! And with that explanation found all the other great outstanding scientific mysteries about our existence are now also able to be truthfully explained―of the meaning of our existence, of the origin of our unconditionally selfless moral instincts, and of why we humans became conscious when other animals haven't. Yes, the full story of life on Earth can finally be told―and all of these incredible breakthroughs and insights are presented here in this 'greatest of all books'.
Griffith gets as much right as he does wrong. Keep your grains of salt handy, you may need them. His examinations of Plato and Jesus are interesting and his insights into the dual nature of individualist and collectivist humans are likely close to true, however, he misses much, such as: the importance of propaganda in Plato’s Cave Allegory, the role of martyrs and violent revolutionary movements in the politics of Christ’s time on earth, and his examination of the hemispheres of the brain leave something to be desired. His use of denial and the dead effect in the early chapters are self-defeating, however he is quite insightful despite his failures in the mid and later chapters as he gets closer and closer to his expertise of Biology. Give and take are advised as are multiple readings. The text is dense and requires intellectual filtering. “Buyer” beware.35
