Yuval Noah Harari: “21 Lessons for the 21st Century” | Talks at Google November 8, 2019 Related Posts A few cool websites to buy beyblades from!!! 10 Best Sites To Watch Online Movies For Free How Overnight Shipping Works About The Author Glenn Jones 100 Comments kofManKan Interviewer isn't up to the job. Google should be able to do better. July 8, 2019 Reply David M. Taylor 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. July 10, 2019 Reply David M. Taylor 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 July 12, 2019 Reply Hexanitrobenzene I don't understand why so many commenters think that the host was dumb/incompetent.

July 13, 2019 Reply Snowdenbleep A great video despite the uninspired interviewer, repeatedly interrupting and unable to engage with the answers he was getting. July 13, 2019 Reply Snowdenbleep "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. July 13, 2019 Reply Kimber Xtc Thank you very much Yuval. The world is for all, share it appropriately. July 14, 2019 Reply rbs 1960 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. July 16, 2019 Reply Timmy Peter 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.

I love this guy!!!!!! July 19, 2019 Reply John Williams 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. July 20, 2019 Reply Yvette Cowley Noah you are too intelligent for this world July 21, 2019 Reply Haim P 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." July 24, 2019 Reply Luciano Moffatt @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. July 25, 2019 Reply blutige blutwurst Boring July 28, 2019 Reply stanzin otzer He is a rare gem of the 21sr century.

Lol July 30, 2019 Reply Serg Serg 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? July 31, 2019 Reply Sadam Jama 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. July 31, 2019 Reply Raja Rita White is so not in sync with what Harari is saying.

The education system hasn't been about such topics as discussed here since they decided that indoctrination was far more important. August 4, 2019 Reply Fernando Sandoval 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. August 4, 2019 Reply Sandra Gayer 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. August 6, 2019 Reply Wainda Youngthain Thank you 😊 Yuval and Googles. August 6, 2019 Reply Callisto Moon There is no free will.

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.

This POS is more concerned about cruelty to animals than Palestinian children by his apartheid genocide government. August 18, 2019 Reply sbranagh1 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.

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?
