Krone der Schöpfung? Vor 100 000 Jahren war der Homo sapiens noch ein unbedeutendes Tier, das unauffällig in einem abgelegenen Winkel des afrikanischen Kontinents lebte. Unsere Vorfahren teilten sich den Planeten mit mindestens fünf weiteren menschlichen Spezies, und die Rolle, die sie im Ökosystem spielten, war nicht größer als die von Gorillas, Libellen oder Quallen. Vor 70 000 Jahren dann vollzog sich ein mysteriöser und rascher Wandel mit dem Homo sapiens, und es war vor allem die Beschaffenheit seines Gehirns, die ihn zum Herren des Planeten und zum Schrecken des Ökosystems werden ließ. Bis heute hat sich diese Vorherrschaft stetig zugespitzt: Der Mensch hat die Fähigkeit zu schöpferischem und zu zerstörerischem Handeln wie kein anderes Lebewesen. Anschaulich, unterhaltsam und stellenweise hochkomisch zeichnet Yuval Harari die Geschichte des Menschen nach und zeigt alle großen, aber auch alle ambivalenten Momente unserer Menschwerdung.

Thinkers and Dreamers honours Carl C. Berger, professor of Canadian history at the University of Toronto for more than forty years and author of influential works on Canadian intellectual history. In this collection, Professor Berger's colleagues and former students explore the currents of intellectual life in North America since the mid-nineteenth century. Broad in scope, the essays range in content from a commentary on works in intellectual history to analyses of the development of particular disciplines and distinctive cultural institutions. Several of the contributions provide sharp critiques of historical thought, including a discussion of professional scholarship and an analysis of the field of intellectual history. Others address issues that combine institutional and cultural history, such as an examination of Victorian Canada and a discussion of immigration and citizenship. These varied reflections aptly convey Berger's contributions to the study of Canadian history.

Noch heute leben zahlreiche Stämme als Jäger und Sammler in unzugänglichen Teilen der Welt. Jared Diamond, Professor für Geographie und international erfolgreicher Bestsellerautor, kennt sie aus vielen Expeditionen, die er in den letzten Jahrzehnten geleitet hat. In seinem neuen Buch entfaltet er den ganzen Reichtum ihrer verblüffend anderen Lebensweise und zeigt anschaulich, was wir heute von ihnen lernen können. Eine überraschende und unterhaltsame Lektion über die Vielfalt der Kulturen – und eine Kritik unseres modernen Selbstverständnisses. »Jared Diamond schreibt mit Witz, Esprit und großem Sachverstand.« Die Welt »Die Zivilisation hat uns reich, satt und bequem gemacht, aber nicht rundum zufrieden. Jared Diamond hilft uns zu erkennen, woran das liegt. Und nicht nur das: Er sagt uns auch, was wir besser machen können. Vorbilder gibt es genug, von Afrika bis Neuguinea.« Stern »Eine Fundgrube und ein Gedankenanreger ohnegleichen.« Financial Times Deutschland »Auf Diamond passt das überstrapazierte Wort vom Universalgelehrten genau, dazu gehört auch, dass er Autodidakt geblieben ist, um Wissenslücken bald zu schließen, wenn die sich neu öffneten. Er ist die Lernfähigkeit selbst.« Die Zeit »Wichtige Einsichten in unser traditionelles wie modernes Menschsein.« Der Tagesspiegel
