1. According to Harari science, empire and capitalism are linked by the unification of humankind. Sapiens were working towards Globalization. With the creation of money, political order and a universal truth to liberate all beings from suffering I.E. (Buddhism) came the linkage to Globalization. Scientific discovery was shaped by humankind’s ignorance and the process towards unprecedented power. This in return creates the planet to become a historical arena with the europeans conquering the oceans and America. These events generate the rise of capitalism. Harari also discusses that during the scientific revolution humankind with its immense new powers invested its resources into scientific research (Harari P. 249). With government and economic power humankind was able to shape scientific discovery.
2. Harari thought that until the Scientific Revolution human cultures didn’t believe in progress (Harari P. 264). I believe progress does play a pivotal role in the linkage of science, empire and capitalism. I somewhat agree with Harari but to believe that all human cultures up until that point in history didn’t believe in progress is uncertain. Many cultures believed in different things. Some of them were dependent on what their religion was and what they believed in. You can’t say that all cultures were the same who knows what happened back then.
