Humankind: A New History of Human Nature [9781408898932]

(1 review) Write a Review

It's a belief that unites the left and right, psychologists and philosophers, writers and historians.

It drives the headlines that surround us and the laws that touch our lives. And its roots sink deep into Western thought: from Machiavelli to Hobbes, Freud to Pinker, the tacit assumption is that humans are bad.

Humankind makes the case for a new argument: that it is realistic, as well as revolutionary, to assume that people are good. When we think the worst of others, it brings out the worst in our politics and economics too.

In his long-awaited second book, international-bestselling author Rutger Bregman shows how believing in human kindness and altruism can be a new way to think - and act as the foundation for achieving true change in our society.

It is time for a new view of human nature.

AUTHOR: Rutger Bregman is one of Europe's most prominent young thinkers. He has published four books on history, philosophy and economics, and has twice been nominated for the prestigious European Press Prize. The Dutch edition of Utopia for Realists became an international bestseller and has been translated into 23 languages.

    One of the best reads ever! In these challenging times we need hope and understanding (especially regarding past mistakes in recording them truth’). No scaremongering, doom and gloom, a triumphant look at human nature/ susceptibilities. The publication itself is hardback and robust - making it a joy to turn the crisp new pages! I’m taking my time savouring every chapter
