New York Times BestsellerA Summer Reading Pick for President Barack Obama, Bill Gates, and Mark Zuckerberg From a renowned historian comes a groundbreaking narrative of humanitys creation and evolutiona #1 international bestsellerthat explores the ways in which biology and history have defined us and enhanced our understanding of what it means to be human.One hundred thousand years ago, at least six different species of humans inhabited Earth. Yet today there is only onehomo sapiens. What happened to the others? And what may happen to us?Most books about the history of humanity pursue either a historical or a biological approach, but Dr. Yuval Noah Harari breaks the mold with this highly original book that begins about 70,000 years ago with the appearance of modern cognition. From examining the role evolving humans have played in the global ecosystem to charting the rise of empires, Sapiens integrates history and science to reconsider accepted narratives, connect past developments with contemporary concerns, and examine specific events within the context of larger ideas.Dr. Harari also compels us to look ahead, because over the last few decades humans have begun to bend laws of natural selection that have governed life for the past four billion years. We are acquiring the ability to design not only the world around us, but also ourselves. Where is this leading us, and what do we want to become?Featuring 27 photographs, 6 maps, and 25 illustrations/diagrams, this provocative and insightful work is sure to spark debate and is essential reading for aficionados of Jared Diamond, James Gleick, Matt Ridley, Robert Wright, and Sharon Moalem.

Femina Sapiens

Femina Sapiens

In prehistory, females probably invented the first tools; baskets of fibre, wooden cooking sticks, thongs, fish traps of woven twigs. But the evidence has disappeared; only sharp-edged flint arrows and axe heads remain, evidence of weapons for hunting larger prey. It was males of the hominid genus - a human ancestor - who used durable, lethal weapons to secure high value protein, winning higher status commensurate with the 'value' of the prize. Male agression developed in parallel with highly efficient hunting tactics, endurance and hunting skills. Today, both male and female status may reflect this ancient epoch, when male and female roles divided. In the modern era there are echoes of feminine 'sensory intuition', the vital ability to seek out and identify safe nourishment from plant sources. In prehistory, male dominance progressed further; women were no match for the 'linear logic' that proved so successful in sustaining and perpetuating human progress and geographic expansion. Patriarchal structures of early human society propelled this new species faster and further than primate ancestors, cementing a pattern of behaviour that persists today; we dominate the world and all its resources. But humans are in danger of rapidly exhausting the planet's reserves of clean air and water, of accelerating the demise of other, long-established species. Women's sensory intuition is perhaps a safer, more human and humane approach to living life on a crowded Earth. Is it time to recognise the fundamental necessity of returning to the female position and her true status? Not as a surrogate male, but as the original model for human behaviour - at one with nature, the ancient Femina sapiens. senory
