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 Australian 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'.

  1. Världsomvälvande
    Kerstin Löfgren, 24 november 2020

    Den viktigaste boken någonsin! Läs den, fundera, tänk nytt. Se människan som hon verkligen är, utan svärtade glasögon som förvrider synen.

  2. Enastående bok
    Ulrik Helms, 7 oktober 2020

    FREEDOM är en enastående bok då den förklararar människans förmåga till altruistiska osjälviska kärleksfulla beteenden kontra egoistiska själviska destruktiva beteenden utifrån ett biologiskt perspektiv. Det är en vetenskaplig förståelse som vi människor aldrig tidigare haft och precis som titeln beskriver är vi äntligen fria från jakten på självförverkligande sökande och det inre kriget mellan mellan våra instinkter och vårt intellekt kan komma till ro. Griffith tar med läsaren på en resa in... Läs hela recensionen

  3. Boken som räddar världen
    Olof Österman, 27 september 2020

    Denna bok levererar, genom biologiskt, mänskligt tillstånds-lösande vetenskap, den välbehövliga och banbrytande psykologiska insikten om vad det innebär att vara människa. Den konfronterar elefanten i vardagsrummet, av vårt motsägande, splittrande, upprörda, potentiellt hemska, men också empatiska, samarbetsinriktade och kärleksfulla beteende, och läsaren som är subjektet, får sig själv förklarad och svar på den inre frågan om sin egen och andras godhet, vilket är det yttersta och fantastiska...

Övrig information

Jeremy Griffith (1945-) is an Australian biologist who has dedicated his life to bringing fully accountable, biological understanding to the dilemma of the human condition--the underlying issue in all human life of our species' extraordinary capacity for what has been called 'good' and 'evil'. While it's undeniable that humans are capable of great love and empathy, we also have an unspeakable history of greed, hatred, rape, torture, murder and war; a propensity for deeds so shocking and overwhelming that the eternal question of 'Why?' has seemed depressingly inexplicable. Even in our everyday behaviour, why, when the ideals of life are to be cooperative, selfless and loving, are we so ruthlessly competitive and selfish that human life has become all but unbearable and our planet near destroyed? How could we humans possibly be considered good when all the evidence seems to unequivocally indicate that we are a deeply flawed, bad, even 'evil' species? For most people, trying to think about this ultimate of questions of whether we humans are fundamentally good or not has been an unbearably self-confronting exercise. Indeed, the issue of the human condition has been so depressing for virtually all humans that only a rare few individuals have been sound and secure enough in self to go anywhere near the subject. Nurtured by a sheltered upbringing in the Australian bush (countryside), Jeremy is one of those rare few. His soundness and resulting extraordinary integrity and thus clarity of thought, coupled with his training in biology, has enabled him to successfully grapple with this most foreboding of all subjects of the human condition and produce the breakthrough, human-behaviour-demystifying-and-ameliorating explanation of it, which is presented in all his publications, including his summa masterpiece, 2015 book, 'FREEDOM: The End Of The Human Condition'
