- How do we make sense of today’s political divisions?
In a wide-ranging conversation full of insight, historian Yuval Harari places our current turmoil in a broader context, against the ongoing disruption of our technology, climate, media — even our notion of what humanity is for.
This is the first of a series of TED Dialogues, seeking a thoughtful response to escalating political divisiveness.
This talk was presented at an official TED conference, and was featured by our editors on the home page.
