Summary of Rebecca Serle´s Book In Five Years
Chapter by Chapter Summary and analysis of Rebecca Serle´s Book In Five Years, including detailed summaries of the chapters of the original book.
A genetic mutation 70,000 years ago gave humans (Homo sapiens) the ability to imagine and believe things that aren’t true, which, Harari argues, had a profound impact on humanity’s ability to cooperate in large groups.
The Cognitive Revolution is one of the key turning points in human history that Harari examines in great detail. There are also references to the Agricultural Revolution (10,000 years ago) and the Industrial Revolution (300 years ago), both of which saw humanity migrate from foraging in the wild to farming in more permanent communities.
