Pământ. Terra. Planeta noastră. 4.5 miliarde ani de evoluție. Dar într-o clipită o specie a reușit să schimbe fața acestui glob albastru. Omul. Noi.  Cea mai dezvoltată, capabilă, dar în același timp și destructivă creație a naturii. Dar niște întrebări persistă, iar răspunsurile sunt extrem de variabile și relative. Ce ne facem să fim atât de avansați și străluciți? Și care este mecanismul ce declanșează acel potențial distructiv insațiabil în prezentul nostru zbuciumat? La aceste enigme încearcă să ne răspundă autorul Yuval Noah Harari prin această lucrare cu un titlu exhaustiv: Sapiens. Cine suntem, cum am ajuns și încotro dorim să ne îndreptăm? 
Scrisă într-un ritm vivant această carte încearcă să ne prezinte chintesența verbului prin care ne conducem destinele: a trăi.

Descriere

This is The Sunday Times Bestseller. Planet Earth is 4.5 billion years old. In just a fraction of that time, one species among countless others has conquered it.

Us. We are the most advanced and most destructive animals ever to have lived. What makes us brilliant? What makes us deadly? What makes us Sapiens? In this bold and provocative book, Yuval Noah Harari explores who we are, how we got here and where we're going.

Sapiens is a thrilling account of humankind's extraordinary history - from the Stone Age to the Silicon Age - and our journey from insignificant apes to rulers of the world. "It tackles the biggest questions of history and of the modern world, and it is written in unforgettably vivid language. You will love it!" (Jared Diamond, author of Guns, Germs and Steel).


Textul de pe ultima copertă

One hundred thousand years ago, at least six human species inhabited the earth. Today there is just one. Us. Homo sapiens. How did our species succeed in the battle for dominance? Why did our foraging ancestors come together to create cities and kingdoms? How did we come to believe in gods, nations, and human rights; to trust money, books, and laws; and to be enslaved by bureaucracy, timetables, and consumerism? And what will our world be like in the millennia to come?
In Sapiens, Professor Yuval Noah Harari spans the whole of human history, from the very first humans to walk the earth to the radical—and sometimes devastating—breakthroughs of the cognitive, agricultural, and scientific revolutions. Drawing on insights from biology, anthropology, paleontology, and economics, and incorporating full-color illustrations throughout the text, Harari explores how the currents of history have shaped our human societies, the animals and plants around us, and even our personalities. Have we become happier as history has unfolded? Can we ever free our behavior from the legacy of our ancestors? And what, if anything, can we do to influence the course of the centuries to come?
Bold, wide-ranging, and provocative, Sapiens integrates history and science to challenge everything we thought we knew about being human: our thoughts, our actions, our heritage...and our future.

Recenzii

Sapiens tackles the biggest questions of history and of the modern world, and it is written in unforgettably vivid language.”
Sapiens is learned, thought-provoking and crisply written…. Fascinating.”
“In Sapiens, Harari delves deep into our history as a species to help us understand who we are and what made us this way. An engrossing read.”
“Yuval Noah Harari’s celebrated Sapiens does for human evolution what Stephen Hawking’s A Brief History of Time did for physics.… He does a superb job of outlining our slow emergence and eventual domination of the planet.”
“Ambitious and illuminating …the wonderful and terrifying saga of the human species on earth.”
“[I]nteresting and provocative…It gives you a sense of perspective on how briefly we’ve been on this earth, how short things like agriculture and science have been around, and why it makes sense for us to not take them for granted.”
“I would recommend this book to anyone interested in a fun, engaging look at early human history…you’ll have a hard time putting it down.”
“Thank God someone finally wrote [this] exact book.”
“Yuval Noah Harari is an emerging rock-star lecturer at the nexus of history and science…. Sapiens takes readers on a sweeping tour of the history of our species…. Harari’s formidable intellect sheds light on the biggest breakthroughs in the human story…important reading for serious-minded, self-reflective sapiens.”
“It is one of the best accounts by a Homo sapiens of the unlikely story of our violent, accomplished species.…It is one hell of a story. And it has seldom been told better…. Compulsively readable and impossibly learned.”
