Yuval Noah Harari

Dr. Yuval Noah Harari lectures at the Department of History, the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. He originally specialized in medieval history and military history, completing his D.Phil. at the University of Oxford (Jesus College) in 2002, and publishing numerous books and articles. His most recent book is titled Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind (originally published in Hebrew under the title A Brief History of Mankind). The book surveys the entire length of human history, from the evolution of Homo sapiens in Pleistocene East Africa up to the political and technological revolutions of the 21st-century. The Hebrew edition has become a bestseller in Israel. It has generated much interest both in the academic community and among the general public, and has turned Harari into an instant celebrity. YouTube Video clips of Harari’s lectures on the history of the world have been viewed by tens of thousands of Israelis.

jumbo brain is a jumbo drain
Viktoriia Horbunovahas quoted2 years ago
On the individual level, we are inspired to constantly increase our incomes and our standards of living. Even if you are quite satisfied with your current conditions, you should strive for more. Yesterday’s luxuries become today’s necessities. If once you could live well in a three-bedroom apartment with one car and a single desktop computer, today you need a five-bedroom house with two cars and a host of iPods, tablets and smartphones.

    Чем мне нравится Харари, так это тем что он рассуждает о серьезных темах доступным языком.
    Книга интересная, хотя есть некоторые тезисы, которые повторяются из его первой книги.
    Теперь ещё больше готова к чипированию, искусственному интеллекту и прочим занимательным вещам! 😂

    It's a really interesting way of looking at our past as a species and how we reach the place where we are now and what's to come.
    Some of the chapters can let you think for hours whiteout end
