A Hopeful History
Rutger Bregman - 2020-06-02 (first published in 2019)
Goodreads Rating
This revolutionary book argues that the innate goodness and cooperation of human beings has been the greatest factor in our success. Author Rutger Bregman debunks the idea that humans are inherently selfish and self-interested, instead offering a new historical perspective that shows we are evolutionarily wired for cooperation. Through little-known true stories, he shows that our instinct to trust each other has a firm evolutionary basis. The ultimate goal of Humankind is to demonstrate a new social system that reorients our thinking towards positive and high expectations of our fellow man, which will reap lasting success. Bregman presents his groundbreaking ideas in a witty and frank manner, making history, social science, and economic theory accessible to all.
