Description

Yuval Noah Harari, author of the best-selling Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind, envisions a not-too-distant world in which we face a new set of challenges. Now, 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. War is obsolete. You are more likely to commit suicide than be killed in conflict. Famine is disappearing. You are at more risk of obesity than starvation. Death is just a technical problem. Equality is out - but immortality is in. What does our future hold?

Great book and excellent reader

A world of possibilities opening your eyes on where we might be headed to. Derek perkins is a very good reader, good tone, relaxing voice, and knows how to captivate your attention. I prefer this type of books in audio.

Globalement très bon

Excellent livre qui présente une vision claire et large des avenirs potentiels de l'humanité.

Le début sera un peu long pour ceux qui ont déjà lu Sapiens puisque de nombreux passages ont été repris du 1er livre.

Je regrette également que les scénarios plus catastrophes (écroulement de la finance, épuisement des ressources, bouleversements climatiques etc) n'aient pas été pris en compte par l'auteur mais il me semble que c'est volontaire puisque l'auteur se présente comme un optimiste

Deep analysis of what could come

This book really made me think about the possibilities we as human beings have in the near future and although it seems like utter nonsense, technology is already shaping us to inimaginable ways. Everyone should read this book and think about where we are heading as a species.

What could be the future of Homo Sapien?

This book may be remembered in generations to come, as a ground breaking endeavour in 2016, to understand and explore, where we Homo Sapiens are heading in the next few decades to a century. The author uses lots of recent scientific discoveries in human biology, as well as the ever more sophisticated algorithms developed by IT in an ever more interconnected environment to enhance its ability to analyse data, to support his analysis and propositions. The author looks into many fundamental features that what we, Homo Sapiens think, as our relative superiority and uniqueness. However, as you read through the pages, it dawns to us that this (soon) may not be so, and with the advancement of artificial intelligence, combining with big data, we are moving towards an era we no longer recognise ... This is not a scaremongering book, but one that illustrates the possibilities with as much objectivities as a great scholar could possibly be. A must read !

The book is great but the narrative is incomplete

I read and listen to audible at the same time. I realised that the narration of the book is incomplete. The narrator tend to skip a few paragraphs. Due to this reason, i have to constantly pause the audiobook in order to read the paragraph myself.

If you want to have your mind bend and stretched a bit, this book is for you

If Homo Sapiens gave me a few different and deeper perspectives about humanity, then Homo Deus really stretched my big picture systematic thinking mind into different orbits.

I can cery well see some of the scenarios discussed here come to fruition- in fact I see many of the trains having left the stations already.

If anything, the book assumes to have figured out consciousness as a mere emergent property of complex networks and algorithms for which the scientific community has no consensus yet. The possibility that human computational powers extend still deeper than the presumed smart algorithms of the future cannot be discarded. In fact, that seems to me to be our only hope of survival as a species.

Excellent book! Really excellent!!

A continuation to Sapiens

The book is not as good as Sapiens but more uncomfortable / thought provoking which makes it a very challenging read.

The first part I felt does repeat many of the topics found in Sapiens, the second half of the book was great and a super fast read.

I would recommend reading it but not straight after Sapiens

Harari invites you to open your mind and read

Getting through vanishing od human kind is not that bad after someone explains it this way. Each story is just a subjective view, but this one serves to open your eyes and mind and take in more and more information and wonderful ideas.

Intelligence vs Consciousness.

A great read, it relate a lot to Tedmark book Life 3.0. The future is data! I wonder how Yuval Harari feels about data and internet influence in the past US election , it's exactly like how this book predicts our future!

Ihr werdet sein wie Gott...

Ich würde dieses Buch jedem empfehlen, der an der Geschichte und Zukunft unserer Spezies interessiert ist. So lobend hatte sich Bill Gates über die kurze Geschichte der Menschheit geäußert. Ich gehe mit dieser Begeisterung in die Verlängerung und darf mir erlauben diese Empfehlung mit Nachdruck auch für den Nachfolger auszusprechen: Homo deus ist ein großes Vergnügen, ein wilder Hörbuchritt. Wenn ich sage flott und witzig geschrieben - der Vatikan als das Silicon Valley des 12sten Jahrhundert - möchte ich damit meine Bewunderung und Freude ausdrücken das ein so scharfsinniger Denker und Gelehrter sich so klar und vorzüglich lesbar ausdrückt. Von den Anfängen unserer Spezies bis zur Geburt des Homo deus.
Von archaischen Opferritualen bis zur transhumanen Singularität. Wie leichtfüßig der Autor Zeit und Raum durchmißt und sich dabei doch immer wieder in prognostischer Bescheidenheit übt. Die Lektüre vertieft das Verständnis für das so erstaunliche Funktionieren großer Gesellschaften und ganzer Zivilisationen. Wie funktionieren Revolutionen, wie ist das Verhältnis von Religion und Wissenschaft zu bestimmen. Was für eine reichhaltige Angebotspalette:Neurowissenschaftliche Exkurse zu Bewusstsein und Willensfreiheit. Tierphilosophisches Werben für Empathie. Herrschaft der Algorithmen.Und das spielentscheidende 1:0 des Mario Götze im Weltmeisterschaftsfinale 2014😊😊😊

Zusammen.mit dem Vorgänger Buch Homo Sapiens vermittelt Harari dem Leser mit Homo Deus den Eindruck, dass es doch einen Menschen gibt, der nahezu Alles weiß.

Interesting but very repetitive

The narrator continues to do a good job and I found it easy to listen to him as he read Harari's text which is - again - written in an easily understandable fashion.

However, if you have (recently) read / listened to the prequel, you will recognize a lot of the points and arguments. While I understand the need to give readers who do not know the first book or have read it a long time ago the chance to get caught up, I also found it quite frustrating and boring to be told again what I already knew. My very subjective feeling (which I did not varify by looking at the run time of the chapters or anything like that so it might be a little off / exaggerated) is that merely a third or so of the book contains new information and insights. Harari expands on the "old" points and arguments of course but personally, I was hoping for significantly less repetition.

The points he does make are very interesting though so if you liked the first book and don't mind a rehash (or haven't read the first book but are interested in the topics), I think that you will find this quite enjoyable!

A Tour de force

the author reviews the history of man and ideas to show a possible future that may not be pretty, but he shows that it is definitely plausible. I enjoyed it from the beginning to the end. A must read.

A spiritual journey to a future

What will happen to our society when the belief In the rights of the individual would crumble? In this sequel to his book "Sapiens", Yuval Harari takes us on a spiritual journey and shows that progress in science and technology is giving humans God or demi God like features but at the same time is shaking the foundations of our humanist beliefs. The outcome of this revolution still lies in the future, but the arguments about the roads that could lead to this future have a solid foundation and result in a book that is more than just an interesting read.
