Join us for a discussion with Yuval Noah Harari, the renowned historian and author of international bestseller Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind.

What is the current status of religions and ideologies in the world, and what will be the likely impact of 21st-century technological breakthroughs on religion and ideology? Will traditional religions and ideologies—from Christianity and Islam to Liberalism and Socialism—manage to survive the technological and economic revolutions of the 21st century?

Dr. Yuval Noah Harari lectures at the Department of History, the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. His current research focuses on macro-historical questions: What is the relation between history and biology? Is there justice in history? Did people become happier as history unfolded?

His most recent book is Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind. The book surveys the entire length of human history, from the evolution of Homo sapiens in the Stone Age up to the political and technological revolutions of the twenty-first century. It has become an international bestseller, and has been translated into close to 30 languages worldwide.

We have limited capacity and it will full quickly. Please RSVP (for free) here:
