Description

Humankind: A Hopeful History pushes the revolutionary theory that “most people, deep down, are pretty decent”. Written by Dutch historian Rutger Bregman (@rcbregman), he takes us through centuries of historical events and challenges the beliefs of Machiavelli, Freud and Dawkins, using plenty of research to prove his point – that humans aren’t inherently selfish.


Humankind gives an alternative understanding of history, and made me think that maybe, we need a new optimistic lens when looking at humanity... to give us hope for the future.
