Musik påvirker mennesker. Men hvordan, hvor meget og hvorfor? Hvad er det der sker, når musikken giver os store oplevelser? Hvorfor har vi ofte stor glæde af velkendt musik, mens nyere musik falder os sværere at begribe? Hvordan er nogle velkomponerede lyde i stand til at udtrykke følelser? Hvilken rolle spiller det for vores oplevelser at se en udøvende musiker? Hvordan påvirkes vi af baggrundsmusik? Kan musisk træning gøre os klogere? Er der nogen, der er født med et større musisk talent end andre? Og kan musik nogen gange være farlig og påvirke vores etiske vurderinger eller måske direkte få os til at handle forkert? I denne bog behandles alle disse store spørgsmål – og flere til. Der sker ud fra to helt forskellige perspektiver. På den ene side ud fra alle de erfaringer og overvejelser man gør sig, når man har levet et liv viet til musikken. På den anden side ud fra videnskabelige forskning, der indbefatter både psykologiske eksperimenter og hjernestudier. Musikken og hjernen er et must read for alle, der interesserer sig for musik eller blot forundres over musikkens dragende effekt og dens store betydning for mennesker.

Yet today there is only onehomo sapiens. What happened to the others?

From examining the role evolving humans have played in the global ecosystem to charting the rise of empires, Sapiens integrates history and science to reconsider accepted narratives, connect past developments with contemporary concerns, and examine specific events within the context of larger ideas.Dr. Harari also compels us to look ahead, because over the last few decades humans have begun to bend laws of natural selection that have governed life for the past four billion years. We are acquiring the ability to design not only the world around us, but also ourselves. Where is this leading us, and what do we want to become?Featuring 27 photographs, 6 maps, and 25 illustrations/diagrams, this provocative and insightful work is sure to spark debate and is essential reading for aficionados of Jared Diamond, James Gleick, Matt Ridley, Robert Wright, and Sharon Moalem.
