DescriptionIn this book trailer, Yuval Noah Harari discusses both his books - Sapiens and Homo Deus. Sapiens explores the history of humankind, and Homo Deus explores the potential future of humankind. Influenced by transhumanism, Harari predicts that in the 21st century, "we will try to transform ourselves into gods" and how "we will try to acquire divine abilities, like the ability to overcome old age and death, and the ability to engineer and create animals, plants, and even humans according to our wishes".
