Tras el éxito de Sapiens. De animales a dioses, Yuval Noah Harari vuelve su mirada al futuro para ver hacia dónde nos dirigimos.

La guerra es algo obsoleto. Es más probable quitarse la vida que morir en un conflicto bélico.

La hambruna está desapareciendo. Es más habitual sufrir obesidad que pasar hambre.

La muerte es solo un problema técnico. Adiós igualdad. Hola inmortalidad.

¿Qué nos depara el futuro?

Yuval Noah Harari, autor bestseller de Sapiens. De animales a dioses, augura un mundo no tan lejano en el cual nos veremos enfrentados a una nueva serie de retos. Homo Deus explora los proyectos, los sueños y las pesadillas que irán moldeando el siglo XXI -desde superar la muerte hasta la creación de la inteligencia artificial.

- Cuando tu Smartphone te conozca mejor de lo que te conoces a ti mismo, ¿seguirás escogiendo tu trabajo, a tu pareja y a tu presidente?

- Cuando la inteligencia artificial nos desmarque del mercado laboral, ¿encontrarán los millones de desempleados algún tipo de significado en las drogas o los juegos virtuales?

- Cuando los cuerpos y cerebros sean productos de diseño, ¿cederá la selección natural el paso al diseño inteligente?

Esto es el futuro de la evolución. Esto es Homo Deus .



ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

With the same insight and clarity that made Sapiens an international hit and a New York Times bestseller, Harari maps out our future.

Over the past century humankind has managed to do the impossible and rein in famine, plague, and war. This may seem hard to accept, but, as Harari explains in his trademark style—thorough, yet riveting—famine, plague and war have been transformed from incomprehensible and uncontrollable forces of nature into manageable challenges. For the first time ever, more people die from eating too much than from eating too little; more people die from old age than from infectious diseases; and more people commit suicide than are killed by soldiers, terrorists and criminals put together. The average American is a thousand times more likely to die from binging at McDonalds than from being blown up by Al Qaeda.

What then will replace famine, plague, and war at the top of the human agenda? As the self-made gods of planet earth, what destinies will we set ourselves, and which quests will we undertake? Homo Deus explores the projects, dreams and nightmares that will shape the twenty-first century—from overcoming death to creating artificial life. It asks the fundamental questions: Where do we go from here? And how will we protect this fragile world from our own destructive powers? This is the next stage of evolution. This is Homo Deus.
