Summary of the History of Humanity from the updated edition / Noah Harari Yuval "Scientific research never ends. The book created a dialogue between me and many readers As a result of which new insights were born, and to Oren the original edition was updated." Yuval Noah Harari One hundred thousand years ago there lived on earth at least six different species of man. None of them was of particular importance. Their role in nature was no greater than that of gorillas, fireflies or seahorses. About seventy thousand years ago some mysterious change took place in the consciousness of one of these human species - a homosexual Sapiens — and pushed him to take over the entire world. The history of Homo Sapiens from then until today is Sometimes shocking, sometimes amusing and always fascinating. What exactly happened to Homo sapiens seventy thousand years ago that pushed him to take over the world? How and why did all the other human species disappear? When did the dog become man's best friend? When were they invented? The money and the great gods, and why? Almost all human societies in history believed in nothing inferior to men? Is it possible to maintain a human society without discrimination and without prejudice? Is it possible to govern effectively and over time? In occupied nations? How did science, capitalism and Europe conquer the world? Does history have a direction? Is there justice in history? Have humans become happier throughout history? And what are the chances that they will be sons Man on earth in a hundred years? A summary of the history of mankind tries to offer answers to these and other questions, and give a quick overview of the key processes and the main turning points of history since the appearance of man on the world stage to the present day. The book invites us behind the scenes of history, and emphasizes to us how strange the plot is, how much Unpredictable are the players, and how little we know about our past.
