Book Summary of Homo Deus by Yuval Noah Harari

About | Homo Deus: A Brief History of Tomorrow by Yuval Noah Harari • Since the beginning of history, humanity has considered itself more special than the rest of the world. And the last few centuries of technological progress have only cemented our dominance over other animals. Yet, the future of humanity is anything but clear. Because humans have tackled the long-enduring problems of hunger, global plagues and war, science and technological interest will soon need to focus on new challenges. Based on Harari's predictions, that future won’t look anything like the world we know today.

Harari wrote Homo Deus: A Brief History of Tomorrow as a sequel to his earlier book, Sapiens: A Brief History of Humanity. After looking at what made humans stand out in the first place (Sapiens), Harari turns his attention to the future and the likely attempts to upgrade humans into gods. What may seem impossible today (immortality, complete control over mood) might become possible in the future. The pace of technology and the prevalence of immersive data systems like Google is changing how humans relate to the world and challenging beliefs about the value of humans in the first place. Will all jobs be replaced by robots? Will the world be run by a class of upgraded super-humans? What will we do if this happens? By looking at history to predict the future, these are the questions that Harari answers.

Here’s what you’ll learn about in this summary:
