Did the women finish reading “Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind” by Yuval Noah Harari? They wrap up their discussion on the book and share their final book reports. Topics include: doctor Google, cyborgs, conspiracy theories, critical thinking, journalism, admitting they don’t know everything, and how our search for “likes” and “stars” influence our public behaviour.

Discussion Points:

  • Did everyone finish reading Sapiens?
  • Fake it until you make it—has the internet taken away our ability to admit we don’t know something?
  • Using doctor Google versus relying on experts
  • Trusting people who admit they are wrong
  • Lack of funding for journalism and how can we find news sources we trust?
  • Is critical thinking a good thing?
  • Conspiracy theories
  • Are scientific studies biased?
  • Cyborgs and you
  • Searching for “likes” and “stars” and how it influences our behaviour
  • Targeted advertisements from our cell phones listening to us
