In Cooperation with Galaxy Group of Companies, Newmag publishes Yuval Noah Harari’s second book in Armenian

The international bestseller, 21 Lessons for the 21 st Century, has been translated into Armenian. The book by the world-famous scientist is presented to the Armenian readership by Newmag Publishing House in partnership with Galaxy Group of Companies. In the summer of 2020, Harari’s Sapiens: A Brief History of Humankind book was released, which received a great reception from the Armenian readers and was sold out in all bookstores shortly after its release. In the second book, the author raises the issues of technological progress and value crisis. Gurgen Khachatryan , co-founder of Galaxy Group of Companies and Chairman of the Board of Directors at Ucom, wrote a special foreword for the Armenian edition of the book.

“When you graduate from university, your profession might no longer be relevant. While you are asleep, artificial intelligence processes your data to target you better. How are we going to survive in this rapidly evolving, questionable world where old models have already collapsed and new ones have not yet been built? Have we learned the lessons of the 21st century or had the courage to even face them head on? This book touches upon the successes and failures of humanity, approaching the accepted truths from an opposite, often unexpected and sobering point of view,” Gurgen Khachatryan wrote.

The book’s editor, Tatevik Nalbandyan , notes that through his work 21 Lessons for the 21 st Century the historian makes us think about values and meanings; understand what our mission is in a world filled with info-noise and uncertainty. In the 21 chapters, which both provoke rebellion and give food for thought, the scientist touches upon many problems. In this book, Harari focuses on the present, trying to understand what is happening here and now. What are the biggest challenges and opportunities today? What should we pay attention to? What should we teach our children?

“The book tries to cover issues of global importance—which will have an impact on the future of our planet—from different standpoints, without the ambition to present a comprehensive picture of reality. Why is liberal democracy in crisis? Is religious consciousness returning? Is a new world war expected? Which civilization rules the world: Western, Chinese or Islamic? These are some of the 21 important questions that the author ponders on, urging the readers not to be indifferent to the debate about the future of humanity,” said the translator of the book, Liana Zakaryan.

Harrari, who is one of the most influential scientists of the 21st century, is convinced that globalization is pressuring our personal behavior and moral principles. We are all entangled in a single large web, which on the one hand restricts our movements while on the other hand transmits even our smallest fluctuations far away. Read our current 21 most important questions and their thorough answers in 21 Lessons for the 21 st Century.

Galaxy Group of Companies is one of the biggest holding companies in Armenia, uniting 15 companies in 3 countries. Most of the company’s turnover is directed towards the implementation of social responsibility programs in Armenia in the spheres of education, social development and art, cooperating in particular with the Teach for Armenia Foundation, Armenian State Symphony Orchestra, Startup Armenia Foundation, Creative Armenia to develop thought leadership and intellectual capital in Armenia.

Newmag Publishing House is one of the leading publishers in Armenia. Founded in 2007, Newmag published a magazine, its namesake, until 2018. In March 2018, the company took a different direction, focusing on the publishing industry. And already in 2018, Newmag presented Armenian and world bestsellers to the public.

i was reading fpc-3.0 release related discussions, and apparently there is a change in perception. not many reactions like “who ever needs it?”, “bury it”, “is it still alive?” any more. apparently more than 15 years was required to realize that it’s a normal project, not worse than many others, not some outdated technology, but keeps developing, there is a community, they do interesting things, have nice solutions, and project doesn’t look like it’s going to die. it’s alive and running. (:

I was discussing something with a friend recently: She said that we leave too many trails and footsteps on the internet, here and there, and we don’t think enough what it will look like to next generations, to our children. Her point was that when generation Z’s kids will become teenagers or adults and will discover our footsteps, then society will rethink many things about it’s behaviour on the net. And that next generations won’t share, at least publicly many things generations before them did. They won’t reveal intimate, personal stuff or won’t do it to such extent.

Well, I think there’s another option: next generations, and we all, will become more sincere, more tolerant, and less reticent. Of course being sincere and showing your underwear are different things. This is culture we may have to learn. However I believe we’ll accept people as they are more than today. We’ll accept that yes, people have many weaknesses, foibles and shortcomings. People behave stupid, say stupid things. People feel bad. People get frustrated. People are jealous and jaundice. People lie. People fake themselves. People are self destructive. They know it’s better to not behave somehow but they behave like that. People are not always fair, say true things, or bring up rational arguments. This is it. We are like that.

And I believe we have an option to learn to accept ourselves as we are, and to be more tolerant to ourselves. To be relaxed and more sincere in public, because people around won’t form bad opinion, make fun of us, and label us. Because we all are weak, have shortcomings, and are not ideal. That’s our chance to be closer to ourselves. This also means - to show off less by faking ourselves, and show off more by who we really are.

In #America men often work long hours even when they are well off; such men, naturally, are indignant at the idea of leisure for wage-earners, except as the grim punishment of unemployment; in fact, they dislike leisure even for their sons. Oddly enough, while they wish their sons to work so hard as to have no time to be civilized, they do not mind their wives and daughters having no work at all. the snobbish admiration of uselessness, which, in an aristocratic #society, extends to both sexes, is, under a #plutocracy, confined to #women
