    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)

    Eye Opening

    Very informative and interesting.Many popular psychological research studies have been brilliantly debunked .The author has also provided some very inspiring little known vignettes from history to affirm humankinds basic goodness.

    It turns you into a better person by confirming the idea that people are basically good

    As a ‘Belgian’ I didn’t expect a ‘Dutchman’ to write a book this good. Goes to show that this kind of thinking had to be improved, and so it did. Yuval Noah Harari recommended it. I in turn, recommend that, if you want to change the world in some way for the better, these are the four best books:
    1. Sapiens
    2. Homo Deus
    3. 21 Lessons For The 21st Century
    4. Humankind
    I am building a charity system that will make us cooperate better and I used these 4 books as a confirmation tool.

    In Dutch to Rutger: Bedankt voor je boek. Mocht je zin hebben om eens af te zakken naar Antwerpen, altijd welkom om te filosoferen bij een koffie. Ik kan me niet verplaatsen want mijn vrouw staat op bevallen.
    Nogmaals bedankt,
    Koen Mortier (van Fitchen)

    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.

    Soulfood for Machiavellians

    The author did an excellent job in putting together the newest insights from all different fields of science to undermine his point of view; humans are basically kind. He did it in a very entertaining and at the same time inspiring way. I really have to rethink a lot of information I learned in my study of psychology. Looking at the human kind from his point of view, certainly will raise my quality of life!

    Einfach wundervoll!

    Dies ist eines der Bücher, die das 21. Jahrhundert braucht!
    Sicherlich liegt die Wahrheit irgendwo in der Mitte, aber Bregman schafft es erfolgreich ein anderes Licht auf den Menschen zu werfen.
    Vieles, was wir als intrinsisch "schlecht" sehen ist kulturell bedingt. Besonders in Zeiten von new media werden die Abstände zwischen uns immer weiter, und wir verlieren unsere menschliche Güte.
    Pflichtlektüre für jedermann!

    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
