EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

New York Times Bestseller A Summer Reading Pick for President Barack Obama, Bill Gates, and Mark Zuckerberg From a renowned historian comes a groundbreaking narrative of humanity’s creation and evolution—a #1 international bestseller—that 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 one—homo 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.

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Sapiens: A Brief History of Mankind - A Complete Summary Seventy thousand years ago, there were at least six different human species on earth. They were insignificant animals whose ecological impact was less than that of fireflies or jellyfish. Today, there is only one human species left: Us. Homo sapiens. But we rule this planet. Sapiens, the book, takes us on a breath-taking ride through our entire human history, from its evolutionary roots to the age of capitalism and genetic engineering, to uncover why we are the way we are. Sapiens focuses on key processes that shaped humankind and the world around it, such as the advent or agriculture, the creation of money, the spread of religion and the rise of the nation state. Unlike other books of its kind, Sapiens takes a multi-disciplinary approach that bridges the gaps between history, biology, philosophy and economics in a way never done before. Furthermore, taking both the macro and micro view, Sapiens conveys not only what happened and why, but also how it felt for individuals. Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind is a book by Professor Yuval Noah Harari first published in Hebrew in Israel in 2011, and in English in 2014. Harari cites Jared Diamond's Guns, Germs, and Steel (1997) as one of the greatest inspirations for the book by showing that it was possible to "ask very big questions and answer them scientifically."

Volume one of the epic, beautifully illustrated graphic history of humankind, based on Yuval Noah Harari's internationally bestselling phenomenon In a world deluged by irrelevant information, clarity is power. How can we see the big picture without getting caught up in an infinity of little details? One way is to step back, to look at the really big picture: the entire history of the human species. Sapiens: A Graphic History, The Birth of Humankind is the story of how an insignificant ape became the ruler of planet Earth, capable of splitting the atom, flying to the Moon, and manipulating the genetic code of life. With Yuval Noah Harari as your guide, and accompanied by characters like Prehistoric Bill, Dr. Fiction, and Detective Lopez, you are invited to take a ride on the wild side of history. The graphic format offers readers a new intellectual and artistic exploration of the past. Human evolution is reimagined as a tacky reality TV show. The first encounter between Sapiens and Neanderthals is explored through the master-pieces of modern art. The extinction of the mammoths and saber-toothed tigers is retold as a "whodunit" movie. Sapiens: A Graphic History is a radical, and radically fun, retelling of the story of humankind, bursting with wit, humor, and colorful characters. If you want to know why we are all trapped inside the dreams of dead people—read this book.

…It is possible and reasonable to challenge even the name of our Species, still called Sapiens?... and to change this generic name which was done by the Carol Linnaeus with about 240 years ago?... …We consider that it is necessary a redefining of Species Sapiens through another refreshment in renaming the Species Sapiens as HOMO BIPAEDISMUS – KULTUR EVOLUTION (HB – KE in the Latin-German version) or HOMO BIPAEDISMUS – CULTURE EVOLUTION (HB – CE through the Latin-English version)… …Let’s see and read the reasons of such a challenging and changing of the name of our Sapiens Species… Sapientologist

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

…Before knowing myself better, it is necessary to know my Species Sapiens, to whom I belong in my entirety, both biologically and ontologically… …But my Species Sapiens belongs at its row, to the Genus or Gattung Homo Anthropos, by enlisting here the line of Homo Habilis, of Homo Ergaster, of Homo Erectus, of Homo Heidelbergensis, possible that of Homo Neanderthal… all of them one should know, at least in their maximal generality… …Moreover, one ought to know the Hominid Family, (Orangutan, Chimpanzee, Bonobo), then, the Order Primate, Class Mammals, Phylum Vertebrata, Kingdom Animals and the Domain Multi-cellular… The passing from the universe of single cells of Pre-Cambrian era towards the multi-cells, of Cambrian era, remains a huge mystery of evolution on our planetary system… …Genesis of Sapiens must be accompanied by the Genesis of Life on our Planetary System, with Genesis of Solar System of Milky Way Galaxy, and Genesis of the Universe-in-itself!... …Is it this endeavor a Sapient-o-mania?... Not at all, it is an encyclopedic and interdisciplinary reality of our Species Sapiens!... Nothing more, nothing less… …But, in which way, would be possible to change the whole of Sapiens into a Shooting–star Species?... Possible, but reporting the Sapiens to Sapiens itself, done through a Philosophical System of the whole Species, by re-thinking that the truth is the whole, as well as in science, in philosophy and in anthropology!... …Let’s reiterate that nothing in Sapiens makes sense, except in the light of creativity, through rationality… …More than that, there is no Species owner, SAPIENSEIGENTÜMER! Through SAPIENTOLOGIZATION will be reached out the greatest overdrive in additional speed of knowledge - episteme and creativity - noesis, of the whole Sapiens throughout of its development in the last 50.000 years!... …Almost every human being wants to know primarily, of where she / he comes from, who is she / he and where she/ he goes... …Almost every man would like to know who is her / his ancestors are, and who will be her / his offspring... …Almost every human being would like to know, how was the origin of humankind, its past, its present existence and to found out, to foresee in advance, its possible future... …By observing and researching the nature of human, it was taught that, without ancestors, without preceding branches, no offspring would arise... …Through the discovery of the laws of nature, it has been found or found that the theory of evolution contradicts almost all of the myths of creation of religions and of theologies... …Through the sciences of Biology, of Anthropology and Sapientology, the man had ascertained their kinship with the human beings, by calling himself as Wisdom - man, as Intelligent Being, as Creative Being or HOMO SAPIENS... …With this biological name, HOMO, in connection with the self-given artificial names of SAPIENS by INTELLIGENCE, the humanity development recognizes many creations and achievements (in art, in technology, in science, in civilizations, in partial prosperity, in the treatment of epidemic diseases, in prolongation of average lifespan), by admitting also many catastrophic results of wild behaviors as wars, as civilizations destroying, or as illegal migration, as religious fanaticism and terrorism... The book Ancestors & Sapiens is written and thought in this way and pathway… Ancestors of Sapiens through Sapientologist

EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

In many ways, education mirrors society by reflecting changing and emergent goals and values as well as by contributing to both the reproduction and production of particular life forms. In the context of the formative project «Europe, » education is called upon to play an increasingly central role, one that is responsive to particular images of the European Union and to its aspirations and goals. The widespread conviction is that education and training will re-invigorate ailing economies, and that, in the context of globalization, national and regional competitiveness will only prevail if there is a qualitative continued improvement in human capital. This volume critically examines such claims, considering the ways in which learning is being constructed across Europe and the implications this has for notions of democratic citizenship and education.
