He got his PhD degree at Jesus College, Oxford, under Steven J. Gunn’s supervision in the year 2002. He pursued postdoctoral studies in history as a Yad Hanadiv Fellow.

Yuval is interested in the ways that Homo sapiens reached their current condition and just what the future holds for them. His research has focused on certain macro-historical questions like: What is the relation between both biology and history? Have people gotten happier as history played out? Does history actually have a direction?

He is a vegan and he believes that this is a result of his own research, that includes his view on the foundation of the dairy industry is breaking the bonds between calf and mother cow.

Yuval’s book “Sapiens” was published first in Hebrew in the year 2011 and then in the year 2014 in English.

Harari met his husband, Itzik Yahav, in the year 2002, and calls him his internet of everything. Yahav is also Harari’s personal manager. The couple was married in a civil ceremony in Toronto in Canada.

He says that Vipassana meditation, which he started while in Oxford in the year 2000 transformed his life quite a bit. He practices two hours of each day, for an hour at the start and at the end of his work day. Each year he goes on a meditation retreat that lasts for at least thirty days in silence and without social media or books. Yuval is also an assistant meditation teacher.

Yuval dedicated his book Homo Deus to SN Goenka, his teacher that lovingly taught him some important things. He also said he would have been unable to write the book without the insight, focus, and peace he gained from practicing Vipassana for fifteen years. He regards meditation as a way of researching.

“Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind” is a non-fiction book that was released in the year 2014.

How did our little species succeed in the fight for dominance? Why did our foraging ancestors get together to create these cities and kingdoms? How did we come to believe in nations, gods, and human rights? How did we gain a trust in money, laws and books, as well as get enslaved by bureaucracy, consumerism, and timetables? What is our world going to be like in the millennia to come?

In this, Yuval spans all of human history, from the very first humans that walked the earth to the very radical, as well as sometimes devastating, breakthroughs of the Scientific, Cognitive, and Agricultural Revolutions. Drawing on the insights from paleontology, biology, economics, and anthropology, he looks into how the currents of history have shaped the plants and animals all around us, our human societies, and even our own personalities.

Have we gotten happier while history unfolds? Will we ever free our own behavior from the heritage of our ancestors? What, if anything, are we able to do to influence the course of the centuries to come?

“Homo Deus: A History of Tomorrow” is a non-fiction book that was released in the year 2017. Over the past hundred years mankind has managed to do the impossible and rein in things like war, famine, and plague. This might seem pretty hard to accept.

But like Harari explains in his signature (thorough, yet captivating) plague, war, and famine has been turned from uncontrollable incomprehensible forces of nature into manageable challenges. For the very first time ever, more people are dying from eating far too much rather than too little, more die from old age than infectious diseases. More are committing suicide than getting killed by criminals, soldiers, and terrorists combined. The average American is one thousand times more likely to die binging at McDonald’s than from getting blown up by Al Qaeda.

What would then replace war, famine, and plague at the top of mankind’s agenda? In the role of self-made gods of Earth, what destinies are we going to give ourselves, and what are the quests we are going to undertake? This book explores the dreams, nightmares, and projects that are going to shape the twenty-first century; from creating artificial life to overcoming death. It asks the fundamental questions: How are we going to protect this fragile world from our own destructive abilities? Where will we go from here? This is the next part of evolution. It is known as Homo Deus.
