Sapiens

A Brief History of Humankind, Nominiert: Royal Society of Biology Book Award 2015, Lesung. CD Standard Audio Format. Ungekürzte Ausgabe

100,000 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, Dr 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, palaeontology and economics, 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 behaviour from the heritage 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 challenges everything we thought we knew about being human: our thoughts, our actions, our power ... and our future.

'Here is a simple reason why Sapiens has risen explosively to the ranks of an international bestseller.
It tackles the biggest questions of history and of the modern world, and it is written in unforgettably vivid language. You will love it!' - Jared Diamond

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 ear... 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.
