In 2015, Israeli historian Yuval Noah Harari asked big questions about the past, looking at humanity’s creation and evolution in Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind. In Homo Deus, he’s looking ahead and what might happen now that history’s major killers – famine, plague, and war – are no longer the serious threat they once were. Without those factors, what will humanity do next? What are the big projects and major challenges we might undertake? I can already imagine how controversial this book might be, as well as how much it might challenge the way I think about my own place in the world.
