Homo Deus: A History of Tomorrow

Yuval Noah Harari, 2020

Homo Deus: A History of Tomorrow by Yuval Noah Harari, Beck-Verlag, 2020. Harari is a professor of history at Hebrew University in Jerusalem and presents two remarkable books: Homo Deus is the speculation that democracy, humanism and liberalism will become irrelevant as a model of society when data and robots become independent. This is, of course, nonsense and strong stuff. Nevertheless, anyone who wants to understand Trump's, Putin's and Orbán's fantasies of omnipotence should read this book. It is an ode to progress and at the same time relentlessly reveals the risks of digitalization for enlightenment.
