Homo Deus: A Brief History of Tomorrow by Yuval Noah Harari

Homo Deus (2015) explains how we came to be the planet’s dominant species and uncovers a prediction for the future of humanity. It examines our present humanist state, the notion of individual choice and how we persist in worshipping the individual. It also reveals how science and technology will eventually make humans subservient to computer algorithms.

  • People seeking to understand humankind’s history of progress
  • Technophiles wishing to learn more about the future
  • Technophobes who want to prepare themselves for the worst
