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.
“‘Homo Deus’ will shock you. It will entertain you. Above all, it will make you think in ways you had not thought before.”
“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.”
“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 and accessible manner.”
