Opis produktu

Dr Yuval Noah Harari has a PhD in History from the University of Oxford and now lectures at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, specialising in World History. Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind has become an international phenomenon attracting a legion of fans from Bill Gates and Barack Obama to Chris Evans and Jarvis Cocker, and is published in nearly 40 languages worldwide. It was a Sunday Times Number One bestseller and was in the Top Ten for over six months in paperback. His follow-up to Sapiens, Homo Deus: A Brief History of Tomorrow was also a Top Ten Bestseller and was described by the Guardian as śeven more readable, even more important, than his excellent Sapiens.**From the author of the global phenomenon Sapiens****A Guardian Book of the Year****An Evening Standard Book of the Year****A TLS Book of the Year**śHomo Deus will shock you. It will entertain you. Above all, it will make you think in ways you had not thought before. Daniel Kahneman, author of Thinking Fast, and SlowYuval Noah Harari, author of the bestselling Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind, envisions a not-too-distant world in which we face a new set of challenges. In Homo Deus, he examines our future with his trademark blend of science, history, philosophy and every discipline in between.Homo Deus explores the projects, dreams and nightmares that will shape the twenty-first century from overcoming death to creating artificial life. It asks the fundamental questions: Where do we go from here? And how will we protect this fragile world from our own destructive powers? This is the next stage of evolution. This is Homo Deus.War is obsoleteYou are more likely to commit suicide than be killed in conflictFamine is disappearingYou are at more risk of obesity than starvationDeath is just a technical problemEquality is out but immortality is inWhat does our future hold?Sapiens showed us where we came from. Homo Deus shows us where we're going."An exhilarating book that takes the reader deep into questions of identity, consciousness and intelligence Harari is a naturally gifted explainer, invariably ready with a telling anecdote or memorable analogy. As a result, its tempting to see him less as historian than as some kind of all-purpose sage.""Sets out with enviable (and alarming) lucidity the massive challenges now facing our species as genetic technologies, AI and robotics alter forever our relationships with one another and with other species. Its even more readable, even more important, than his excellent Sapiens.""I think the mark of a great book is that it not only alters the way you see the world after you've read it, it also casts the past in a different light. In Homo Deus, Yuval Noah Harari shows us where mankind is headed in an absolutely clear-sighted & accessible manner. I don't normally ask for autographs but I got a bit starstruck & asked him to sign my copy of his book after we'd had a conversation for my show on BBC 6Music. His inscription reads: 'The future is in your hands' - a good thing to remember when such great changes are afoot.""Spellbinding This is a very intelligent book, full of sharp insights and mordant wit... It is a quirky and cool book, with a sliver of ice at its heart... It is hard to imagine anyone could read this book without getting an occasional, vertiginous thrill.""Homo Deus will shock you. It will entertain you. Above all, it will make you think in ways you had not thought before.""It is thrilling to watch such a talented author trample so freely across so many disciplines... Harrari's skill lies in the way he tilts the prism in all these fields and looks at the world in different ways, providing fresh angles on what we thought we knew... the result is scintillating""Like all great epics, Sapiens demanded a sequel. Homo Deus, in which that likely apocalyptic future is imagined in spooling detail, is that book. It is a highly seductive scenario planner for the numerous ways in which we might overreach ourselves.""Homo Deus is a sweeping, apocalyptic history of the human race, which reads more like a TED-talk on acid.""Harari is an intellectual magpie who has plucked theories and data from many disciplines - including philosophy, theology, computer science and biology - to produce a brilliantly original, thought-provoking and important study of where mankind is heading.""What elevates Harari above many chroniclers of our age is his exceptional clarity and focus.""Like its predecessor, which sold in its millions, Homo Deus will have a world audience. Taking over where Sapiens left off, it looks forward to where history, ethics and gargantuan biotech investment might lead us - to the end, Harari thinks, of death, suffering and the very idea of being human.""A remarkable book, full of insights and thoughtful reinterpretations of what we thought we knew about ourselves and our history... One measure of Hararis achievement is that one has to look a long way back to 1934, in fact, the year when Lewis Mumfords Technics and Civilization was published for a book with comparable ambition and scope.""Harari is an exceptional writer, who seems to have been specially chosen by the muses as a conduit for the zeitgeist Fascinating reading.""This provocative book analyses our present state and makes startling predictions about the future.""Sapiens was a paean to humanitys powers of collective imaginationwith darker notes on how these mega-stories might direct our new, transformative, information and biological technologies. Is there anything more dangerous than dissatisfied and irresponsible gods who dont know what they want?Ł was Hararis closing line. Homo Deus tries to answer that question, with all the pedagogic and encyclopaedic brilliance of its predecessor.""An often thought-provoking and always elegantly written book.""Brilliant, mind-expandingexplores where Homo Sapiens might go from here, via his signature blend of science, history, philosophy and every discipline in between.""His reasoning is laid out with a lucidity that makes it a joy to read.""Yuval Noah Harari is the most entertaining and thought-provoking writer of non-fiction at the moment. In Homo Deus he covers broad terrain, touching on everything from Zen Buddhism to the Second World War to how bats read the frequency of echoes, to explore the largest most difficult and sometimes frightening subject of all: our own future. As with Sapiens you finish the book feeling much wiser, but not having noticed any hard work along the way. I loved this book.""Sapiens showed us where we came from. Homo Deus shows us where were going""Challenging, readable and thought-provoking He has provided a smart look at what may be ahead for humanity."
