One hundred thousand years ago, at least six different species of humans inhabited Earth. Yet now there is only one - homo sapiens. What happened to the others? And what may happen to us?
Most books about the history of humanity pursue either a historical or a biological approach, but Dr. Yuval Noah Harari aims to break the mold with this book that begins about 70,000 years ago with the appearance of modern cognition. From examining the role evolving humans have played in the global ecosystem to charting the rise of empires, 'Sapiens' aims to integrate history and science to reconsider accepted narratives, connect developments with concerns, and examine specific events within the context of larger ideas.
Dr. Harari also wants to compel readers to look ahead, because over the last few decades humans have begun to bend laws of natural selection that have governed life for the past four billion years. According to him, we are acquiring the ability to design not only the world around us, but also ourselves. Where is this leading us, and what do we want to become?
This book includes 27 photographs, 6 maps and 25 illustrations/diagrams.
