Yuval 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 21st 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.
