Yuval Noah Harari in conversation with Moisés Naím

Arequipa 2021, 

Few intellectuals have captivated and excited so many readers as Yuval Noah Harari. He is the author of the ambitious books Sapiens. A Brief History of Humankind (2014), Homo Deus. A Brief History of Tomorrow (2016) and 21 Lessons for the 21st Century (2018), titles that have been translated into 60 languages and have sold over 30 million copies. The Israeli writer, historian and philosopher, Doctor in History from Oxford University and lecturer at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, is one of the most incisive thinkers today, able to articulate some of the most critical themes from human history and civilization in his books, covering everything from religion to technology, from the invention of agriculture to the arrival of capitalism. In his most recent publication, Sapiens. A Graphic History (2021), Harari adapts his acclaimed work Sapiens into visual language, telling the human story in images with the help of his fellow writer David Vandermeulen and the illustrator Daniel Casanave. In this first volume of what is set to be a graphic series, Harari covers the early period of humanity and presents our distant relatives, the Neanderthals. In conversation with the writer and journalist Moisés Naím.
