Homo Deus

by Yuval Noah Harari

Homo Deus

Yuval Noah Harari

Overview

As unfathomable as it may sound, the numbers don't lie: we're more likely to die of suicide than war, obesity than starvation, old age than poverty. What's even more astonishing is that we've managed to put all these fundamental, human ailments in their place in just the last century. But that begs the question: What's next for the human race?

In Homo Deus, Yuval Noah Harari tries to deliver an answer. After covering our past extensively in his global, multi-million-copy bestseller Sapiens, Harari now turns his eyes toward the future of mankind. Following a brief recap of human history, he describes the narratives we currently use to make sense of the world. He also outlines which ones could mark our demise if we're not careful.

"This is the best reason to learn history: not in order to predict the future, but to free yourself of the past and imagine alternative destinies."
