Homo Deus: Homo Deus: Brief history of tomorrow

War is somewhat obsolete. It is more probable to kill oneself than to die in a warlike conflict. The famine is disappearing. Obesity is more common than starvation. Death is just a technical problem. Goodbye equality. Hello immortality.

What does the future hold?

Yuval Noah Harari, bestselling author of Sapiens. From animals to gods, it augurs a not so distant world in which we will be faced with a new series of challenges. Homo Deus explores the projects, dreams and nightmares that will shape the 21st century - from overcoming death to the creation of artificial intelligence.

  • When your Smartphone knows you better than you know yourself, will you continue to choose your job, your partner and your president?
  • When artificial intelligence sets us apart from the job market, will the millions of unemployed find some meaning in drugs or virtual games?
  • When bodies and brains are designer products, will natural selection give way to intelligent design?

This is the future of evolution. This is Homo Deus.
