Event description

Description

Two of the greatest thought leaders of the 21st century come together to discuss the Future of Humanity. Join us for an unmissable conversation between the intellectual titans – Yuval Noah Harari and Thomas L. Friedman.

In Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind, Yuval Noah Harari compressed 70,000 years of history into a single book, arguing that one species rose to dominance over all others because shared beliefs enabled collaboration.

In Homo Deus: A Brief History of Tomorrow, he argued that the centre may be shifting once more, as we transfer our faith in ourselves to the gods of data and the algorithm.

Thomas Friedman has argued that the beginning of this century will be remembered not for conflicts or political events, but for the globalised ‘flattening’ of the world and the explosion of advanced technologies.

The cognitive revolution has already happened. What will our restless and aggressive species do about it? Join us for an urgent conversation between two great soothsayers of the age in which we now find ourselves.
