Homo Deus

We stand on the brink of technological advancements that could change everything we know about human life. But will this make us superhuman, as many hope, or could our drive for progress actually lead to our own destruction?

Yuval Noah Harari believes it could go either way: our ever-growing scientific knowledge certainly has the potential to give us incredible, even "godlike" abilities, but in striving for this, we might come close to losing the very things that make us human. Homo Deus examines both the risks and the potential rewards of this journey and offers compelling visions of humanity's possible futures.

You will learn:

  • How technology has helped us overcome many of the obstacles that have traditionally threatened human life
  • How "curing" death might be humanity's next big challenge
  • How our efforts to technologically enhance our lives might render human beings obsolete.
