Yuval Noah Harari

Dr. Yuval Noah Harari lectures at the Department of History, the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. He originally specialized in medieval history and military history, completing his D.Phil. at the University of Oxford (Jesus College) in 2002, and publishing numerous books and articles. His most recent book is titled Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind (originally published in Hebrew under the title A Brief History of Mankind). The book surveys the entire length of human history, from the evolution of Homo sapiens in Pleistocene East Africa up to the political and technological revolutions of the 21st-century. The Hebrew edition has become a bestseller in Israel. It has generated much interest both in the academic community and among the general public, and has turned Harari into an instant celebrity. YouTube Video clips of Harari’s lectures on the history of the world have been viewed by tens of thousands of Israelis.

Shubhankar Zingrehas quotedlast year
War spreads ideas, technologies and people far more quickly than commerce.
Алёна Белобородоваhas quoted2 years ago
Most top predators of the planet are majestic creatures. Millions of years of dominion have filled them with self-confidence. Sapiens by contrast is more like a banana republic dictator. Having so recently been one of the underdogs of the savannah, we are full of fears and anxieties over our position, which makes us doubly cruel and dangerous. Many historical calamities, from deadly wars to ecological catastrophes, have resulted from this over-hasty jump.
