Homo Deus, Yuval Noah Harari

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Yuval Noah Harari, the acclaimed author of the New York Times bestseller and global phenomenon Sapiens, returns with another equally original, compelling, and provocative book. This time, Harari shifts his focus towards humanity’s future and our quest to elevate ourselves into gods.

Over the past century, humankind has achieved the seemingly impossible by taming famine, plague, and war. As Harari explains in his trademark style (detailed yet captivating), these once incomprehensible and uncontrollable forces of nature have now become manageable challenges.

Surprisingly, more people now die from overeating than from starvation, and more die from old age than from infectious diseases. The average American is also far more likely to perish from binge-eating at a fast-food restaurant than from being targeted by Al-Qaeda.

So, what will replace famine, plague, and war as the top priorities on the human agenda? As the self-made gods of planet Earth, what destinies will we set for ourselves, and which quests will we undertake? Homo Deus explores the projects, dreams, and nightmares that will shape the 21st century—from overcoming death to creating artificial life.

It poses the fundamental questions: Where do we go from here? How will we protect this fragile world from our own destructive powers in the next stage of evolution?
