It asks the fundamental questions: Where do we go from here? Certainly a disappointment when compared to Sapiens. Those expectations were met in some areas, and not in others: overall the book is engaging but a shadow of its predecessor. Wells's vision of two species, one of which literally feeds on the other even as it sustains it? Most of the book is actually a re-telling of the power structures that have shaped human societies, focusing on the concept of religions. We will need a new religion to make sense of all this, since the powerful combo of Humanism+Science will not work in world where the sanctity of being Human has lost meaning. Over the past century humankind has managed to do the impossible and rein in famine, plague, and war.

It felt like the starting point of a conversation, somewhat controversial of course, but isn't that the best way to get a debate going? This is what these book asks and it dwells in many scenarios this could happen, there are already artificial intelligence available our iPhones, robot doctors and gps , humans could use these new technology to enhance themselves and if they do , will they still be fundamentally human? Non-conscious but highly intelligent algorithms may soon know us better than we know ourselves. Still, he sums up the section well with the following. Now I effectively assume my continuing identity as a person - because that works, sort of, too. The result is that the Sapiens are becoming more and more God-like, Harari says, and one is forced to pause and reflect: by any previous standards of our history, are we not already Gods? It is hard to imagine anyone could read this book without getting an occasional, vertiginous thrill. To sum up he reminds me of the experimenter that forgets he is part of the experiment and can never not be. The masses will lose their economic and military importance. The agricultural revolution was both an economic and a religious revolution, used to justify brutal exploitation of animals.

What will happen to society, politics and daily life when non-conscious but highly intelligent algorithms know us better than we know ourselves? And if we become obsolete who or what is primed to take over the mantle and what will happens to Homo Sapiens once it does happen? A year later, the U. The challenges to come as the human race changes are going to unlike anything imaginable. The Data Religion Dataism says that the universe consists of data flows, and the value of any phenomenon or entity is determined by its contribution to data processing. But often our feelings are just irrational and wrong. But this is perhaps a minor point in Harari's argument.

More people die from old age than from infectious diseases. There's a really interesting discussion on how we measure success in these systems; too often we measure them by their own yardsticks, not on anything real. The hatred of monotheists for the theory of evolution is inspired by the lack of scientific evidence for a human soul. He even entertains the idea with the rise of brain-machine interfaces, where today's elite class of human beings would upgrade themselves to a biologically improved version of humans, which the general mass couldn't possibly afford for their lives. I would criticize that he is too harsh at times, always saying that the ethics of human rights and whatnot are arbitrary and there is no sense that the social contract is any kind of evolution.

As you can tell, I found much to ponder here. He focuses on some aspects of modern progress e. With this book Harari looks to the future, to where we may go and how we may get there. The Humanist Revolution: List the best innovations religions introduced in the past century or two. Humans will depend more and more on algorithms and at some point algorithms will be all powerful.

Harari is fast becoming one of my favourite writers. Algorithms - a modern word, but very important, as we all are biological algorithms. A sign that there is wisdom which is eternal and will endure, isn't it? Wissenschaftsjournalist Bas Kast bricht, gerade 40-jährig, zusammen. In pursuit of health, happiness and power, humans will gradually change first one of their features and then another, and another, until they will no longer be human. If the division of labor between machines and men becomes extreme, will society fragment into H. I can't claim to be well-read in the topic of , so I'm definitely biased in my opinion that Harari is a genius.

The rest of the review isn't really for you, but notes for me. I recently read Harari's previous great book, , and I enjoyed this one just as much. Many believe that we have something in us that could be called a soul or consciousness or similar but it is not clear that this exists and our behavior could possibly be only a result of complex algorithms, without free will or possibly random will but not free. And on the very last page, he makes us wonder if his hardcore materialistic perspective has just been a long, extended ruse: he asks us to question a worldview that would deny the significance of consciousness. But I'm afraid that's all.

But scriptures are no longer a source of creativity, as they say nothing about modern technologies such as genetic engineering or artificial intelligence. Are organisms really just algorithms, and is life really just data processing? Growth is the supreme value. It even recycles some ideas from Sapiens while expanding others. Immortal, All-powerful, Obsolete: this is the future of the Sapiens. However, it is clear now that intelligence which is superior is adequate to ascend the pyramid. If it should never be allowed to do that, despite its superior intelligence and power, why is it ethical for humans to exploit and kill pigs? Why do we have such strong faith in imaginary things such as money, gods, human rights, companies.

As we incrementally crawl towards some form of technological singularity, perhaps we need to give pause to not just the benefits, but costs of self-driving cars and sex robots. As finally when the universe is so cold nothing can happen, long after this proton decay will plant the last nail in all coffins. Harari is a master of the big picture, which is refreshing in times of turmoil when it becomes hard to see further from the events right in front of us. Zumindest bis zu seinem elften Geburtstag. Still, the concepts are so important and take much energy to truly contemplate so they are generally worth repeating. If you enjoyed Sapiens you will want to read Homo Deus, it is possibly the most thought provoking One of those rare books which exceeds expectations. Homo Deus is a book that wants to present the possible roads that the future might lead us to.

We have already seen how the technological decimation of parts of the working class was a major theme in the 2016 election in the United States and the vote for Brexit in the United Kingdom. The past few hundred years have seen a human sentered religion taking place of more traditional religions, humanism. I'm disappointed that he didn't point this out at all, but just painted the darkest picture possible. It is a rat race. For example, the rise of not only ride-sharing but car-sharing apps is directly predicted.
