This is a guided discussion focused on understanding the New York Times best seller, “Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind” written by Yuval Noah Harari, an Israeli public intellectual, historian and a professor in the Department of History at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem (Wikipedia). A study guide prepared by the instructor will be distributed to all students on the roster. Because there are slightly different versions of the book extant, (it was first published in Hebrew in Israel in 2011), the study guide is based on excerpts from the version of the book published by HarperCollins Publishers in 2015 available at Amazon (hardcover). The study guide will allow you to participate in class.
