Historian and philosopher of humanity’s past and future, famous speaker Yuval Noah Harari illuminates the present by detailing its trajectory. A world-renowned keynote speaker, Yuval Noah Harari has twice addressed the World Economic Forum annual meeting in Davos. He has also engaged in public conversations with heads of state around the world. His 2018 TED talk was the first to be delivered by a digital avatar.
Yuval Noah Harari is one of our most influential public intellectuals. That is to say, his books have sold nearly 30 million copies and have been translated into 60 languages. His international breakthrough, Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind, offered revolutionary proof of a market for intellectually challenging books. Its successor, Homo Deus, looks to the future, examining humanity’s prospects for resolving the existential problems it has created.
His latest book, 21 Lessons for the 21st Century, turns the reader’s attention to our time’s most pressing questions. Which issues should be commanding our attention, and which are just distractions? How should we prioritize our challenges, and how can we meet them?
Additionally to his scholarly work, Harari leads Sapienship, a social-impact company he co-founded in 2019. Sapienship undertakes projects in the education and entertainment sectors, helping focus public conversation on global challenges.
Harari began his career by studying the history of late medieval Europe, another time of massive upheaval and uncertainty. After also earning his PhD from Oxford University, he embarked on a teaching career, and is now a lecturer at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
In this conference Professor Harari, one of the most famous historians of today, will expand his fascinating interpretation of the history of humanity described in his bestseller book 'Sapiens'.
He will seek to question what it means to be "human" and everything that this entails, how we become what we are today and what future we have ahead of us. An exciting conference that will not leave anyone indifferent.
In this keynote the best-selling writer Yuval Harari will introduce us to a possible tomorrow full of challenges that we currently do not even contemplate, a tomorrow prepared for the superior state of Homo Sapiens, Homo Deus.
Thanks to his insightful and bright style, Harari will take us to examine the projects, dreams and nightmares we will experience in this near future.
In this conference, the double winner of the Polonsky Award for Creativity and Originality, Yuval Noah Harari, will delve us into the exploration of our present, challenging us to maintain a collective and individual focus on our actual changing and changing world.
Thanks to its fascinating analysis of our present we can recognize ourselves in many situations and feeling the discomfort of not know how to react to each one.
