'Like to improve your understanding of the human condition? Ever wondered about our contradictory capacity for good and evil? Jeremy Griffith believes he has the answer to the riddle of humanity. To why humanity's progress is stalled in a state of unknowing...A Species In Denial, with a foreword by Charles Birch, traverses wide ground indeed. From deciphering Plato's cave allegory, to human denial, to bringing peace to the war between the sexes, to the denial-free history of the human race and the demystification of religion.' -- John McConnell, The Sydney Institute Quarterly
'Jeremy Griffith is an Australian biologist but his range of interests and his store of knowledge seem almost infinite... The chapter called Resignation is brilliant in its insight into human nature and what we call the idealism of the young...

It can't be said of many books that the world looks different after you've read them. It can be said of this book.'-- Antonia Hilderbrand, Toowoomba Chronicle

'A superb book, it brings out the truth of a new and wider world.' -- John Morton, Emeritus Professor Zoology, Auckland University, New Zealand
'Boy! what a book ... Should be in hotel rooms like the other book.' -- Ambi Kaur, Melbourne, Australia - reader response, 2003
'Offers so many insights into our divided selves.' -- Ronald Conway OAM, distinguished Australian psychologist
