2 Why humans run the world | Yuval Noah Harari

24 jul. 2015

Seventy thousand years ago, our human ancestors were insignificant animals, just minding their own business in a corner of Africa with all the other animals. But now, few would disagree that humans dominate planet Earth; we’ve spread to every continent, and our actions determine the fate of other animals (and possibly Earth itself). How did we get from there to here? Historian Yuval Noah Harari suggests a surprising reason for the rise of humanity.

3 Why fascism is so tempting — and how your data could power it | Yuval Noah Harari

8 jun. 2018

In a profound talk about technology and power, author and historian Yuval Noah Harari explains the important difference between fascism and nationalism — and what the consolidation of our data means for the future of democracy. Appearing as a hologram live from Tel Aviv, Harari warns that the greatest danger that now faces liberal democracy is that the revolution in information technology will make dictatorships more efficient and capable of control. “The enemies of liberal democracy hack our feelings of fear and hate and vanity, and then use these feelings to polarize and destroy,” Harari says. “It is the responsibility of all of us to get to know our weaknesses and make sure they don’t become weapons.” (Followed by a brief conversation with TED curator Chris Anderson)

Myths. We tend to think they’re a thing of the past, fabrications that early humans needed to believe in because their understanding of the world was so meagre. But what if modern civilisation were itself based on a set of myths? This is the big question posed by Professor Yuval Noah Harari, author of Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind, which has become one of the most talked about bestsellers of recent years. In this exclusive appearance for Intelligence Squared, Harari will argue that all political orders are based on useful fictions which have allowed groups of humans, from ancient Mesopotamia through to the Roman empire and modern capitalist societies, to cooperate in numbers far beyond the scope of any other species.

To give an example, Hammurabi, the great ruler of ancient Babylon, and the US founding fathers both created well-functioning societies. Hammurabi’s was based on hierarchy, with the king at the top and the slaves at the bottom, while the Americans’ was based on freedom and equality between all citizens. Yet the idea of equality, Harari will claim, is as much a fiction as the idea that a king or rich nobleman is ‘better’ than a humble peasant. What made both of these societies work was the fact that within each of them everyone believed in the same set of imagined underlying principles. In a similar vein, money is a fiction that depends on the trust that we collectively put in it. The fact that it is a ‘myth’ has not impeded its usefulness. It has become the most universal and efficient system of mutual trust ever devised, allowing the development of global trade networks and sophisticated modern capitalism.

Professor Harari came to the Intelligence Squared stage to explain how the fictions that we believe in are an inseparable part of human culture and civilisation.

Dr Yuval Noah Harari legt uit hoe revoluties in de technologie onze maatschappij onze lichamen en hersenen zullen veranderen.

Kijk de QenA hier: https://youtu.be/Lt7votAzI78
Abboneer voor vaste wetenschaps videos: http://bit.ly/RiSubscRibe

TIjdens de geschiedenis waren er verschillende revoluties: In de technologie, economie en in de politiek. Maar een ding bleef telkens hetzelfde: De mensheid zelf. We hebben nogsteeds dezelfde lichamen, dezelfde hersenen en de zelfde gedachten als onze voorouders in China of uit het stenen tijdperk. Onze gereedschappen en scholing zijn totaal verschillend van vroeger maar toch bleven de structuren van het menselijk lichaam hetzelfde.

Toch zal de volgende revolutie verandering brengen in deze geschiedenis. In de 21ste eeuw zullen er opnieuw revoluties zijn in de techonologie, economie en politiek. Maar voor de eerste keer in de geschiedenis zal ook de mens een revolutie ondergaan. Niet alleen onze maatschappij en economie maar ook onze lichamen en gedachten zullen transformeren door deze nieuwe technologie zoals bij genetische wetenschappen, nano technologie en brein computers.

Homo Deus zal u shockeren. Het zal u vermaken maar bovenal zal het je op nieuwe manieren over dingen laten nadenken zoals je dat daarvoor nooit deed. – Daniel Kahneman, schrijver van Thinking, Fast and Slow (Denken, snel en langzaam).

Dr Yuval Noah Harari heeft is gepromoveerd in geschiedenis aan de universiteit van Oxford en geeft daar colleges over allerlei delen van de geschiedenis. ‘Sapiens: Een beknopte geschiedenis van de mensheid’, gepubliceerd in 2014, was een bestseller van de Sunday New York Times en werd wereld wijd in 40 talen vertaald.
