The Unbelievable Story of Sapiens

This is an essay on Sapiens, a Brief History of Humankind, by Yuval Noah Harari, and his readers; millions of people around the world. More than a history book, it is a cultural phenomenon. We analyze the entire process of its construction and its consequences for the Humanities. We will attempt to answer these –as well as other– questions: How has this book been constructed? What are its strengths and weaknesses? What is its message? And who recommends it and for what purposes? With the opinion of more than one hundred academics from various universities around the world, this essay will provide you with a very complete and detailed analysis of the whole phenomenon. 


Praise for The Unbelievable Story of Sapiens

- «Mauricio Meglioli's work is an antidote against deceit, an answer to simplification, a call for critical and rational reading, and a valuable contribution to the study of one of the most curious paradoxes of modern life: that which sells the most tends to be of lesser value.» Felipe Fernández-Armesto, William P. Reynolds Professor of History, University of Notre Dame (USA), and autor of many books, such as The World: A Brief History (2007), The Oxford Illustrated History of the World (2019) Straits: Beyond the Myth of Magellan (2022), etc.

- «Meglioli’s book is a detective story almost worthy of Eco...». Andrew Orlowski, THE CRITIC, March 2024.
