Sapiens : a brief history of humankind by Yuval N Harari( Book )

121 editions published between 2011 and 2018 in 15 languages and held by 3,684 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From a renowned historian comes a groundbreaking narrative of humanity's creation and evolution--a #1 international bestseller--that explores the ways in which biology and history have defined us and enhanced our understanding of what it means to be "human." One hundred thousand years ago, at least six different species of humans inhabited Earth. Yet today 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 breaks the mold with this highly original 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 integrates history and science to reconsider accepted narratives, connect past developments with contemporary concerns, and examine specific events within the context of larger ideas .Dr. Harari also compels us 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. 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? Featuring 27 photographs, 6 maps, and 25 illustrations/diagrams, this provocative and insightful work is sure to spark debate and is essential reading for aficionados of Jared Diamond, James Gleick, Matt Ridley, Robert Wright, and Sharon Moalem"--
Homo Deus : a brief history of tomorrow by Yuval N Harari( Book )

56 editions published between 2015 and 2018 in English and Hebrew and held by 2,438 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Over the past century, humankind has managed to do the impossible and rein in famine, plague, and war. For the first time ever, more people die from eating too much than from eating too little; more people die from old age than from infectious diseases; and more people commit suicide than are killed by soldiers, terrorists and criminals put together. The average American is a thousand times more likely to die from binging at McDonald's than from being blown up by Al Qaeda. What then will replace famine, plague, and war at the top of the human agenda? As the self-made gods of planet Earth, what destinies will we set for ourselves, and which quests will we undertake? Homo Deus explores the projects, dreams and nightmares that will shape the twenty-first century -- from overcoming death to creating artificial life. It asks the fundamental questions: Where do we go from here? And how will we protect this fragile world from our own destructive powers? This is the next stage of evolution. This is Homo Deus." --Publisher's Web site
21 lessons for the 21st century by Yuval N Harari( Book )

14 editions published in 2018 in English and Dutch and held by 866 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

How do computers and robots change the meaning of being human? How do we deal with the epidemic of fake news? Are nations and religions still relevant? What should we teach our children? As technology advances faster than our understanding of it, hacking becomes a tactic of war, and the world feels more polarized than ever, Yuval Harari addresses the challenge of navigating life in the face of constant and disorienting change and raises the important questions we need to ask ourselves in order to survive. How can we retain freedom of choice when Big Data is watching us? What will the future workforce look like, and how should we ready ourselves for it? How should we deal with the threat of terrorism? Why is liberal democracy in crisis? Harari invites us to consider values, meaning, and personal engagement in a world full of noise and uncertainty. When we are deluged with irrelevant information, clarity is power

Special operations in the age of chivalry, 1100-1550 by Yuval N Harari( )

17 editions published between 2007 and 2018 in English and Korean and held by 445 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Alongside the familiar pitched battles, regular sieges, and large-scale manoeuvers, medieval and early modern wars also involved assassination, abduction, treason, and sabotage. These undercover operations were aimed chiefly against key individuals, mostly royalty or the leaders of the opposing army, and against strategic fortified places, including bridges, mills and dams. Because of their clandestine nature, and the consequent scarcity of contemporary records, covert operations have not previously been studied in any detail; this book is the first to survey special operations from the eleventh century to the sixteenth"--Jacket
Renaissance military memoirs : war, history, and identity, 1450-1600 by Yuval N Harari( )

11 editions published between 2004 and 2012 in English and held by 385 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This is a study of autobiographical writings of Renaissance soldiers. It outlines the ways in which they reflect Renaissance cultural, political and historical consciousness, with a particular focus on conceptions of war history, selfhood and identity. A vivid picture of Renaissance military life and military mentality emerges, which sheds light on the attitude of Renaissance soldiers both towards contemporary historical developments such as the rise of the modern, state, and towards such issues as comradeship, women, honor, violence and death. Comparison with similar medieval and twentieth-century material highlights the differences in the Renaissance soldier's understanding of war and of human experience."--Jacket

"Like a good detective story, Harari presents us with facts and clues which seem to lead towards one conclusion, only to puncture our certainties. This is a book of exraordinary wit, erudition, and range."--Professor Joanna Bourke, Birkbeck College, University of London

Homo Deus Eine Geschichte von Morgen by Yuval N Harari( Book )

20 editions published between 2017 and 2018 in 5 languages and held by 191 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In seinem Kultbuch Eine kurze Geschichte der Menschheit erklärte Yuval Noah Harari, wie unsere Spezies die Erde erobern konnte. In "Homo Deus" stößt er vor in eine noch verborgene Welt: die Zukunft. Was wird mit uns und unserem Planeten passieren, wenn die neuen Technologien dem Menschen gottgleiche Fähigkeiten verleihen - schöpferische wie zerstörerische - und das Leben selbst auf eine völlig neue Stufe der Evolution heben? Wie wird es dem Homo Sapiens ergehen, wenn er einen technikverstärkten Homo Deus erschafft, der sich vom heutigen Menschen deutlicher unterscheidet als dieser vom Neandertaler? Was bleibt von uns und der modernen Religion des Humanismus, wenn wir Maschinen konstruieren, die alles besser können als wir? In unserer Gier nach Gesundheit, Glück und Macht könnten wir uns ganz allmählich so weit verändern, bis wir schließlich keine Menschen mehr sind. (Quelle: www.buchhandel.de)
Homo Deus : breve historia del mañana by Yuval N Harari( Book )

11 editions published between 2016 and 2018 in Spanish and held by 188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Tras el éxito de Sapiens. De animales a dioses, Yuval Noah Harari vuelve su mirada al futuro para ver hacia dónde nos dirigimos. La guerra es algo obsoleto. Es más probable quitarse la vida que morir en un conflicto bélico. La hambruna está desapareciendo. Es más habitual sufrir obesidad que pasar hambre. La muerte es solo un problema técnico. Adiós igualdad. Hola inmortalidad. ¿Qué nos depara el futuro? Yuval Noah Harari, autor bestseller de Sapiens. De animales a dioses, augura un mundo no tan lejano en el cual nos veremos enfrentados a una nueva serie de retos. Homo Deus explora los proyectos, los sueños y las pesadillas que irán moldeando el siglo XXI -desde superar la muerte hasta la creación de la inteligencia artificial. Cuando tu Smartphone te conozca mejor de lo que te conoces a ti mismo, ¿seguirás escogiendo tu trabajo, a tu pareja y a tu presidente? Cuando la inteligencia artificial nos desmarque del mercado laboral, ¿encontrarán los millones de desempleados algún tipo de significado en las drogas o los juegos virtuales? Cuando los cuerpos y cerebros sean productos de diseño, ¿cederá la selección natural el paso al diseño inteligente? Esto es el futuro de la evolución. Esto es Homo Deus . --Amazon
Sapiens : une brève histoire de l'humanité by Yuval N Harari( Book )

6 editions published between 2015 and 2017 in French and held by 170 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Il y a 100 000 ans, la Terre était habitée par au moins six espèces différentes d'hominidés. Une seule a survécu. Nous, les Homo Sapiens. Comment notre espèce a-t-elle réussi à dominer la planète ? Pourquoi nos ancêtres ont-ils uni leurs forces pour créer villes et royaumes ? Comment en sommes-nous arrivés à créer les concepts de religion, de nation, de droits de l'homme ? A dépendre de l'argent, des livres et des lois ? A devenir esclaves de la bureaucratie, des horaires, de la consommation de masse ? Et à quoi ressemblera notre monde dans le millénaire à venir ? Véritable phénomène d'édition, traduit dans une trentaine de langues, Sapiens est un livre audacieux, érudit et provocateur. Professeur d'Histoire à l'Université hébraïque de Jérusalem, Yuval Noah Harari mêle l'Histoire à la Science pour remettre en cause tout ce que nous pensions savoir sur l'humanité : nos pensées, nos actes, notre héritage... et notre futur.

Homo deus : une brève histoire de l'avenir by Yuval N Harari( Book )

5 editions published in 2017 in French and held by 129 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sapiens retraçait l'histoire de l'humanité. Homo Deus interroge son avenir. Que deviendront nos démocraties quand Google et Facebook connaîtront nos goûts et nos préférences politiques mieux que nous-mêmes ? Qu'adviendra-t-il de l'Etat providence lorsque nous, les humains, serons évincés du marché de l'emploi par des ordinateurs plus performants ? Quelle utilisation certaines religions feront-elles de la manipulation génétique ? Homo Deus nous dévoile ce que sera le monde d'aujourd'hui lorsque, à nos mythes collectifs tels que les dieux, l'argent, l'égalité et la liberté, s'allieront de nouvelles technologies démiurgiques. Et que les algorithmes, de plus en plus intelligents, pourront se passer de notre pouvoir de décision. Car, tandis que l'Homo Sapiens devient un Homo Deus, nous nous forgeons un nouveau destin. Best-seller international – plus de 200 000 exemplaires vendus en France, traduit dans près de 40 langues – Sapiens interrogeait l'histoire de l'humanité, de l'âge de la pierre à l'ère de la Silicon Valley. Le nouveau livre de Yuval Noah Harari offre un aperçu vertigineux des rêves et des cauchemars qui façonneront le XXIe siècle. [payot.ch]
Thinking history globally by Diego Adrián Olstein( Book )

2 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Thinking History Globally means thinking about the past and the present beyond national borders, language barriers, and enclosed regions. There are four thinking strategies to gain global perspectives: comparing, connecting, conceptualizing, and contextualizing. Comparing is about contrasting between several cases and drawing new conclusions. Connecting is tracking the interdependences between cases and assessing their importance. Conceptualizing is recognizing that developments in one or several cases belong within a larger recurring pattern. Contextualizing is making sense of one case amidst developments world-wide. This book offers a practical guide into these strategies of thinking by applying them to multiple historical cases, ranging from the first civilizations and up to the First World War. While doing that, Olstein also presents the twelve branches of history that outstand in the application of these four strategies and in thinking history globally: comparative, relational, international, transnational, oceanic, global, world, and big histories, historical sociology, civilizational analysis, world-system approach, and history of globalization"--Descripción del editor
