Reply Dibas Khatiwada says: June 21, 2019 at 12:33 pm I'm reading this book and i just love itChapter : nationalism is 🔥 🔥 🔥 Reply gary grammat says: June 22, 2019 at 9:27 am Be careful about someone who has the recipies of how to change the world. Even a statement that such change is necessary should make you suspicious. Look deeper and you find a lot of utopia in his presentation. He isn't a scientist, he is a historian. Predictions of outcome is an integral part of science, but he admits he isn't even interested in predictions. Reply Gustav Palm says: June 23, 2019 at 12:11 am This conversation in itself is a good example of how stuck we still are in the liberal philosophy of free will. The Google-guy doesn’t get it. Reply Jansci says: June 26, 2019 at 12:42 am This guy is a vacuous fraud . Reply Butoto Mahinduzi says: June 29, 2019 at 12:23 am Harari's reading method: reading many books, just a few pages, grasping what is new. No need to read a hundred pages. He is thinker which insights are just surprising. Reply Sandhya Nambiar says: July 4, 2019 at 2:57 pm Indian wisdom had long long ago addresed these issues. Reply nido kalo says: July 7, 2019 at 2:56 am Love you yuval… From Arunachal Pradesh Reply kofManKan says: July 7, 2019 at 8:24 pm Interviewer isn't up to the job. Google should be able to do better. Reply David M. Taylor says: July 10, 2019 at 10:58 am A lot of very wobbly ideas being promoted here in a very confident package. For example, around 30:44 Harari says "the best test of reality I know is the test of suffering …. If you want to know if a story is about a real entity or a fictional entity then you should just ask can this entity suffer?" He then goes on to argue that Google can't suffer so it is not real. But by this definition the ground under your feet is unreal too and so is the keyboard I am typing on. Reply David M. Taylor says: July 12, 2019 at 10:43 am At 57.00 Harari says that "if you want to commit genocide then you begin by hacking the disgust mechanisms in the brain." A closer look at the roots of the Holocaust shows that you first need to have intellectual respectability for racism … which comes very conveniently from Darwinsim which is the foundation for all Harari's thinking. The full title of Darwin’s revolutionary publication was “On the Originof Species by Means of Natural Selection, or the Preservation of FavouredRaces in the Struggle for Life.” The second part of the title shows thatDarwin’s ideas were overtly racist. In the eighty years between itspublication and the outbreak of the WWII, people were enthusiasticallyapplying the ‘favoured race’ logic to public policies in Europe andAmerica. In “From Darwin to Hitler: Evolutionary Ethics, Eugenics, and Racismin Germany,” Professor Richard Weikart shows how Darwinist thinkers inGermany began applying the good of the race as the sole criterion ofpublic policy. What started as proposals to control the breeding of peoplewho were considered racially inferior, ended with the gas chambers for awhole people group. Richard Evans, Professor of Modern History,University of Cambridge, also recognises the role of a variety of Darwinistwriters and scientists in providing Hitler and the Nazis with the scientificjustification for their policies. I explore these ideas carefully in my forthcoming book: www.faithtechbook.com Reply Hexanitrobenzene says: July 13, 2019 at 5:01 am I don't understand why so many commenters think that the host was dumb/incompetent. I think he did fine. Not stellar, but fine. After all, Google is known for its programmers, not talkers.

Reply Snowdenbleep says: July 13, 2019 at 5:09 pm A great video despite the uninspired interviewer, repeatedly interrupting and unable to engage with the answers he was getting. Reply Snowdenbleep says: July 13, 2019 at 5:14 pm "Compassion is the basis for any society" is the leftists bias perspective on this question. The work of Johnathan Haidt shows that "authority", "sanctity" and "ingroup purity" also provide an important basis for group survival. Reply Kimber Xtc says: July 14, 2019 at 11:34 am Thank you very much Yuval. The world is for all, share it appropriately. Reply rbs 1960 says: July 15, 2019 at 7:07 pm 49:50 till end: A warning for people of the nations promoting a prejudice or a hatred towards a country or a race or a religion. Reply Timmy Peter says: July 16, 2019 at 6:03 pm It's a real shame that Harari is a moral relativist. Harari needs biology lessons. Morals are built-in our biology. Everyone know the same thing about being unjustly accused. Your biology tells you that truth serves compassion and justice. Every human knows the same truth. No, morals are not purely psychological. Morals are not whatever you happen to think. Every human needs compassion to survive infancy, and everyone looks for love at the end of life. There's no subjectivity involving the function of biology to social order. It's a shame because otherwise he seems really bright. Biology lessons are in order. Learn about the functions of emotions and instincts. Reply Aashish Adhikari says: July 18, 2019 at 9:11 am after 45:00 Reply EmuBench says: July 18, 2019 at 9:08 pm Wilson White….

I love this guy!!!!!! Reply John Williams says: July 20, 2019 at 1:52 am Harari begins "21 Lessons for 21st. Century" with a call for clarity in a world deluged by irrelevant information. No one can provide this clarity as effectively as Harari. For this reason I have given this book to all my children and have recommended it to my friends. Read it, reflect on it, to help you explore what you can (and must) do to build a sustainable and humane future for all persons. Reply Yvette Cowley says: July 21, 2019 at 12:21 pm Noah you are too intelligent for this world Reply Haim P says: July 24, 2019 at 12:59 am NOAH HARARI AGREED TO REMOVING PUTIN CRITICISM FROM RUSSIAN TRANSLATION OF NEW BOOK AND REPLACING HIM WITH TRUMP. I am disappointed, the desire to be published damaged his judgment. "In the Hebrew version Bibi will be replaced by Abu Mazen, in the Turkish version of Bibi in Erdogan, in the Chinese version of Shi Jingping in Donald Trump and in the North Korean version Kim John Ong in Harry Truman." Reply Luciano Moffatt says: July 25, 2019 at 1:16 am @25:00 philosophy might have little power but economic theory did and does exert this kind of power: for instance telling that profit is good, and you should maximize shareholders value no matter what. So, it is not exactly true that this happens for the first time.

Reply Bahman Abbassi says: July 30, 2019 at 4:34 pm Just the final words! LolFunny thing is that the youtube here suggests you some video links to click! Lol Reply Serg Serg says: July 31, 2019 at 9:04 am I have question regarding evolution and my ancestors. How many ancestors experiences do I incorporate in my genes. Let’s assume that a new generation is born every 20 years. The purpose is to calculate all ancestors 2000 years backward. Let’s begin with simple calculation 200 years backward which means 10 generations backward. One generation back equals 1*2, two generations back equals 1*2*2, three generations back equals 1*2*2*2, ten generations back equals 2^10 = 1024 ancestors for 200 years back. In order to simplify calculations I round 1024 to 1000 or 10^3. Now let’s calculate ancestors backward 400 years which equals to 1000 * 1000, backward 600 years equals 1000*1000*1000, backward 2000 years equals 1000^(3*10) = 10^30. That means that all my ancestors backward 2000 years equals to the number 1 followed by 30 zeros! Did I really have 1.000.000.000.000.000.000.000.000.000.000 ancestors 2000 years backward? Reply Sadam Jama says: July 31, 2019 at 4:18 pm I have read Homo sapiens. It is intriguing book and I have learnt a lot. Although I didn’t agree with some contents of the book, it captivated me like no other one. Looking forward to read the other books of the writer. Reply Raja Rita says: August 1, 2019 at 1:25 am White is so not in sync with what Harari is saying. Wish Google had got someone who was on Harari's page to pin him.

Reply Quantum Field says: August 4, 2019 at 3:05 pm This guy is 100% right and 100% naive. The education system hasn't been about such topics as discussed here since they decided that indoctrination was far more important. Reply Fernando Sandoval says: August 4, 2019 at 5:44 pm Sadly, Mr Wilson White cannot reach the actual reasoning that Prof Yuval is trying to demonstrate. Result being a high quality talk becomes pure entertainment. Reply Sandra Gayer says: August 5, 2019 at 10:06 pm I use Harari in my teaching as he is thought provoking and gets you to think to try and become = more aware and knowledgable about the WHY – WHAT – HOW – WHERE – WHEN in our lives. We must understand that this planet is fragile. Reply Wainda Youngthain says: August 6, 2019 at 2:28 pm Thank you 😊 Yuval and Googles. Reply Callisto Moon says: August 7, 2019 at 9:12 am There is no free will. All the great minds agree. Reply Mind & Qi are One says: August 7, 2019 at 3:02 pm This is one of the most important books of all times. And I especially love the fact that at the end of the book he is promoting meditation but a stripped down version of meditation without the religious dogma attached. I agree with the other comments that this book should be required reading for every man, woman and child!

Reply MD Shofiur Rahman Marjan says: August 8, 2019 at 6:28 pm 8:00 exactly what i said to my friends few days ago Reply Kate North says: August 9, 2019 at 1:17 am Crap – he’s argues human beings have no free will – so that means he has not chosen his own actions, his own path – he’s merely a product of his environment- so no praise is due for his supposed insight. The discussion about the possibilities of Ai is nothing new either. I could watch for example the movie Elysium or Ai and talk about the same Ai concepts. He’s just a fast talking/motivational speaker guy with an agenda- and that’s fine – but I’m not convinced in the least that he’s a genius. I agree with some of his points and not others – these are conversations we have at the dinner table – not genius.

Reply sbranagh1 says: August 18, 2019 at 7:47 am This POS excrement interviewed at a Vegan restaurant (he's very particular on cruelty to animals), this POS declined to opine on the murder of more than 500 Gaza children by Israel in their genocidal operation on the Gaza Concentration Camp. This POS is more concerned about cruelty to animals than Palestinian children by his apartheid genocide government. Reply sbranagh1 says: August 18, 2019 at 8:02 am This POS is an apologist for genocidal Israel. He declined in a Guardian interview to express a opinion on the bloody Israeli operation that murdered more than 500 children. This POS has opined on the humanity of animals – he's a vegan apparently, He has never opined on the humanity of Palestinians. He's excrement in my view, filth.

Reply Wayne Schlegel says: August 29, 2019 at 8:22 am I checked his books at a store yesterday. And I wondered what I need confirmation for what I think since years anyway? Do I feel better cause some now famous "thinker" proofs I´m right? No, I worry again even more about the stupidity of mankind that makes this man a sensation. And it´s sweet to see the host trying to spot the benefits of the development to avoid the horror of total control his company is aiming at anyway. A critical thinker would focus on that main fact and couldn´t be as naive to discuss big brother scenarios at big brothers palace. If the thinker doesn´t realize he´s used to make big brother look open minded, what big thinker is he?
