      This book is kept interesting by the way the history and comparisons are written It initially made me a bit depressed because of how true it represents society but also made me realise a lot of things I hadn t thought about before Wouldn t mind reading his other books.

      I reviewed this incredible book on another site ReadDreamRelax so thought I d just paste it here link below to original The title of this bestseller is itself as bold a comment on the mental state of humanity that you re likely to find in your local bookstore Griffith s decisive book on the origins, explanation and amelioration from the human condition is a fascinating and confronting series of essays on the answers to the great questions that have plagued mankind since consciousness The width a [...]

      I so wish everyone could read this book but especially the chapter titled Resignation The insight and sheer depth of compassion and understanding that Jeremy Griffith has for all humans but especially teenagers in the midst of their angst is just so profoundly moving that when, in your quieter moments, you really really deeply feel and remember, then you really appreciate what this understanding of the human condition is really about and how very very important it is.To quote a few of my favouri [...]

      A Species In Denial by Jeremy Griffith is a controversial book because it dares to look into the issue of human alienation it dares to confront the issue of self The book is titled A Species In Denial because humans have been unable to deal with the issue of self, the issue of the human condition, the extent of our divided, alienated, fallen state.What is so extraordinary and important is that this bringing to the surface of the issue of our incredibly divided selves is made possible by the cent [...]

      I don t know what the GRs concesus is on reviewing before finishing But if you re not going to, finish that is, or at least not for while, then i never would would I Rhetorical The thing is this book just confused me, not confused becuase I couldn t understand, confused becasue of how it made me feel I m a pretty spriritual emotionally intelligent i like to call it guy I try not to flail with my reactions, let s just say this didn t come naturally but via a fair bit of time on the couch so to sp [...]

      I was given this which was odd because i m hardly known as a deep thinker but I was very thank ful that I was considered worthy of such a book Challenging but only becuase I m used to reading novels I was fascinated and think its something that everyone should take the time to read As i m not into philosophy i m not sure if you d say its a good introduction to philosophy but it feels like an easy book to read about the bigger apsects of life.

      Redundant Political AnalysisGriffith claims that his books explain all human behaviour and that we, the population, are in denial of what is happening in our world But is his position an objective scientific theory or a covert attempt to ground his unconscious ideological preferences in biology Griffith claims that Left wing political analysis is oppressive, hindering liberty and the search for knowladge and that the political Right is at the van guard of intellectual freedom and exploration, fu [...]

      A Species In Denial by author Jeremy GriffithBefore I begin I feels it s important to state that I am not usually prone to ad hominem attacks, yet this book so repulsed my sensibilities that I simply cannot withhold my contempt I am impelled to slander since the author of this work is so vainglorious nothing else could suffice.I first came across the book A Species in Denial as I was perusing a used bookshop.After flicking it over, I noticed that the author, Jeremy Griffith, was an actual biolog [...]

      Carl Jung once wrote We must read the Bible or we shall not understand psychology Our psychology, whole lives, our language and imagery are built upon the Bible The explanation of the human condition is truly a landmark breakthrough in understanding of ourselves and our species The idea that a nerve based brain trial and error learning system that developed in the presence of a gene based learning system stimulus and response system , and thus felt criticized by the original non understanding of [...]

      I ve expressed my views on the writings of Jeremy Griffith in great detail in my review of Beyond The Human Condition, so I won t repeat myself here However one passage of this book gives a particularly good illustration of what is wrong with Griffith s approach.Here is what he has to say about homosexuality pg 336 It follows that the corrupted a man is, the less naive he is and thus the he is aware that women are not innocent Therefore, if a man is extremely hurt and corrupted in his infancy [...]

      From essays about Religion and Demystifying God to Reconciling Men Women I didn t know where to start The individual chapters have merit and are worth reading but I didn t think the structure was up to scratch That said, if you could remove each chapter and make them their own little individual books maybe a series it might work and be effective The chapter on Plato s Cave I d give 5 stars, that was the best description I ve read yet, and that s saying something.
