The Best Christmas Pageant Ever (The Herdmans #1) Trivia
Sapiens by Yuval Noah Harari
H uman beings members of the genus Homo have existed for about 2. The fact remains that the history of sapiens — Harari's name for us — is only a very small part of the history of humankind. Can its full sweep be conveyed in one fell swoop — pages? Not really; it's easier to write a brief history of time — all 14bn years — and Harari also spends many pages on our present and possible future rather than our past. But the deep lines of the story of sapiens are fairly uncontentious, and he sets them out with verve. For the first half of our existence we potter along unremarkably; then we undergo a series of revolutions. First, the "cognitive" revolution: about 70, years ago, we start to behave in far more ingenious ways than before, for reasons that are still obscure, and we spread rapidly across the planet.
Starting from this provocative idea, Sapiens goes on to retell the history of our species from a completely fresh perspective. By combining profound insights with a remarkably vivid language, Sapiens acquired cult status among diverse audiences, captivating teenagers as well as university professors, animal rights activists alongside government ministers. Seventy thousand years ago, there were at least six different human species on earth. They were insignificant animals, whose ecological impact was less than that of fireflies or jellyfish. Today, there is only one human species left: Us.
