Beschreibung

One hundred thousand years ago, at least six human species inhabited the earth. Today there is just one. Us. Homo sapiens. How did our species succeed in the battle for dominance? Why did our foraging ancestors come together to create cities and kingdoms? How did we come to believe in gods, nations, and human rights; to trust money, books, and laws; and to be enslaved by bureaucracy, timetables, and consumerism? And what will our world be like in the millennia to come?

In Sapiens, Professor Yuval Noah Harari spans the whole of human history, from the very first humans to walk the earth to the radical—and sometimes devastating—breakthroughs of the Cognitive, Agricultural, and Scientific Revolutions. Drawing on insights from biology, anthropology, paleontology, and economics, and incorporating full-color illustrations throughout the text, he explores how the currents of history have shaped our human societies, the animals and plants around us, and even our personalities. Have we become happier as history has unfolded? Can we ever free our behavior from the legacy of our ancestors? And what, if anything, can we do to influence the course of the centuries to come?

Bold, wide-ranging, and provocative, Sapiens integrates history and science to challenge everything we thought we knew about being human: our thoughts, our actions, our heritage...and our future.

A smart minds soul

Bewertet: Buch (Taschenbuch)

Never felt more connected to a book or the authors view. An incredible masterpiece and must-have for everybody who is even slightly interested in our human race or better be called the Homo Sapiens itself. I would highly recommend this book to everyone who thinks about our species and wants to know about our previous life on earth. Hararis point of view is very comprehensible, paired with a pinch of sarcasm and cynism, but in the same time he asks important question about our future. We‘ve come a long journey till our ancestors started to follow the road and evolution hits in and now it is in our hands to make well-considered choices and follow the path. You don’t have to concord with the authors point of view, but at least you have to think about his rudiments.
