    Description

    Bloomsbury presents Humankind by Rutger Bregman, read by Rutger Bregman and Thomas Judd.

    The Sunday Times best seller.

    A Guardian, Times, Daily Telegraph and Financial Times summer listen.

    It’s a belief that unites the left and right, psychologists and philosophers, writers and historians. It drives the headlines that surround us and the laws that touch our lives. From Machiavelli to Hobbes, Freud to Dawkins, the roots of this belief have sunk deep into Western thought. Human beings, we’re taught, are by nature selfish and governed by self-interest.

    Humankind makes a new argument: that it is realistic, as well as revolutionary, to assume that people are good. The instinct to cooperate rather than compete, trust rather than distrust, has an evolutionary basis going right back to the beginning of Homo sapiens. By thinking the worst of others, we bring out the worst in our politics and economics too.

    In this major book, internationally best-selling author Rutger Bregman takes some of the world’s most famous studies and events and reframes them, providing a new perspective on the last 200,000 years of human history. From the real-life Lord of the Flies to the Blitz, a Siberian fox farm to an infamous New York murder, Stanley Milgram’s Yale shock machine to the Stanford prison experiment, Bregman shows how believing in human kindness and altruism can be a new way to think – and act as the foundation for achieving true change in our society.

    It is time for a new view of human nature.

    Commentaires

     

    "Never dewy-eyed, wistful or naive, Rutger Bregman makes a wholly robust and convincing case for believing - despite so much apparent evidence to the contrary - that we are not the savage, irredeemably greedy, violent and rapacious species we can be led into thinking ourselves to be. Hugely, highly and happily recommended." (Stephen Fry)

     

    "Rutger Bregman’s extraordinary new book is a revelation.... Humankind is masterful in its grasp of history, both ancient and modern." (Susan Cain, author of Quiet

     

    "Cynicism is a theory of everything, but, as Rutger Bregman brilliantly shows, an elective one. This necessary book widens the aperture of possibility for a better future, and radically." (David Wallace-Wells, author of The Uninhabitable Earth)

    thanks again rutger. very enjoyable listen. really bright me hope and made me see some glaring fallacies in everyday life. such as the fact you never see an interview of these vilified imágenes and refugees.

    Inspiring perspective! Listen in parts.

    Best to listen in small parts as arguments and examples he give to make his point can feel repetitive in later stages of the book. “Against the grain” a title Bregman mentions in the book is definitely worth a listen as wel!

    Excellent book and was narrated wonderfully. The book covered a broad range of topics, it was the next step or setting after the book call Sapians: A Brief History of Humankind. Highly recommend this book

    Wonderful experience driven by facts and science

    I find this book wonderful to read. I feel very positive in how I see the world today, even in the midst of Covid19 and other true problems we face today. I recommend this book to those who still believe the good in this world is worth fighting for. There is a lot more goodness out there, and we only need to reframe how we see the world to see and even taking our part to shape it. Forget the demagogues and doomsday sayers. We have the answers right here on earth and it is each other. The author leads the reader through history, research and scientific studies to show all of these points above and more. I wish the rest of the world could read this book as part of their school curriculum so we can avoid the demagogues and narcissists manipulating our human tendencies to fear people who are different. This book is the light at the end of the tunnel.. the positive energy one needs to deal with every day now for almost four years. ;)

    Expanding you world view

    A very interesting book. It gives a different framework to look at the world than what is usually presented. Insofar it is really eye opening and expanding the perception of society and people. Let’s hope the ideas presented here become more influential, most likely the world would be far better for it.

    enjoy a pertinent truth

    if you read one book in your life, let it be this one. we have to face so many harsh truths. It is past time, we face a joyous one. Being good to each other is human nature. This book presents compelling evidence packaged in entertaining stories

    Must read for anyone in this era of cynicism

    An incredibly well written book that is bound to change your outlook on humankind. This is stuff that should be taught in schools to ensure a better and more kind world.

    Fantastic Eye-opening book!

    A very insightful and positive book! I love how the author takes us on a journey, explaining the course of his research step by steps. Dismantling previous experiments on human behaviors that were falsified and counterbalancing with trustworthy evidences.

    now it all makes sense

    my xmas gift to a dozen colleagues. no blinkist on this one, seems long at times, but only because there are so many valuable insights. it is well written and the points made are well driven home and each adds to the bigger story and the overall potential of this book! thank you for the thorough research painting a different picture of humanity, one that can act like a beacon for our future!

    Provoking and interesting

    Great insight, facts and perspectives into the human nature A more neutral and less empathetic voice would make it even better
