Es wird alles immer schlimmer, eine schreckliche Nachricht jagt die andere: Die Reichen werden reicher, die Armen ärmer. Es gibt immer mehr Kriege, Gewaltverbrechen, Naturkatastrophen. Viele Menschen tragen solche beängstigenden Bilder im Kopf. Doch sie liegen damit grundfalsch. Unser Gehirn verführt uns zu einer dramatisierenden Weltsicht, die mitnichten der Realität entspricht, wie der geniale Statistiker und Wissenschaftler Hans Rosling erklärt. Wer das Buch gelesen hat, wird • ein sicheres, auf Fakten basierendes Gerüst besitzen, um die Welt so zu sehen, wie sie wirklich ist • die zehn gängigsten Arten von aufgebauschten Geschichten erkennen • bessere Entscheidungen treffen können • wahre Factfulness erreichen – jene offene, neugierige und entspannte Geisteshaltung, in der Sie nur noch Ansichten teilen und Urteile fällen, die auf soliden Fakten basieren

INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER “One of the most important books I’ve ever read—an indispensable guide to thinking clearly about the world.” – Bill Gates “Hans Rosling tells the story of ‘the secret silent miracle of human progress’ as only he can. But Factfulness does much more than that. It also explains why progress is so often secret and silent and teaches readers how to see it clearly.” —Melinda Gates "Factfulness by Hans Rosling, an outstanding international public health expert, is a hopeful book about the potential for human progress when we work off facts rather than our inherent biases." - Former U.S. President Barack Obama Factfulness: The stress-reducing habit of only carrying opinions for which you have strong supporting facts. When asked simple questions about global trends—what percentage of the world’s population live in poverty; why the world’s population is increasing; how many girls finish school—we systematically get the answers wrong. So wrong that a chimpanzee choosing answers at random will consistently outguess teachers, journalists, Nobel laureates, and investment bankers. In Factfulness, Professor of International Health and global TED phenomenon Hans Rosling, together with his two long-time collaborators, Anna and Ola, offers a radical new explanation of why this happens. They reveal the ten instincts that distort our perspective—from our tendency to divide the world into two camps (usually some version of us and them) to the way we consume media (where fear rules) to how we perceive progress (believing that most things are getting worse). Our problem is that we don’t know what we don’t know, and even our guesses are informed by unconscious and predictable biases. It turns out that the world, for all its imperfections, is in a much better state than we might think. That doesn’t mean there aren’t real concerns. But when we worry about everything all the time instead of embracing a worldview based on facts, we can lose our ability to focus on the things that threaten us most. Inspiring and revelatory, filled with lively anecdotes and moving stories, Factfulness is an urgent and essential book that will change the way you see the world and empower you to respond to the crises and opportunities of the future. --- “This book is my last battle in my life-long mission to fight devastating ignorance...Previously I armed myself with huge data sets, eye-opening software, an energetic learning style and a Swedish bayonet for sword-swallowing. It wasn’t enough. But I hope this book will be.” Hans Rosling, February 2017.

This book summary and analysis was created for individuals who want to extract the essential contents and are too busy to go through the full version. This book is not intended to replace the original book. Instead, we highly encourage you to buy the full version. There a lot of global trends that, when even the most highly educated people around the world are asked about, are conceived more negatively than it actually is and even chimpanzees will guess more correctly than them. Hans Rosling, Professor of International Health and global TED phenomenon, wrote Factfulness along with his son, Ola Rosling, and daughter-in-law, Anna Rosling Rönnlund—together, they share the reasons to why we distort our worldviews as more negatively than in reality. With ten misconceptions or instincts, they show how our divided ideas (separating us from them), our influence from the media (telling us what to fear), and our perception of progress (seeing how things are getting worse than better) can hinder us from actually making a positive impact. In truth, we are simply not informed right which is exactly why we believe what we believe now. When we think about it, the world is much better now that it had been before; worrying about things and fearing what might happen only hinders us from focusing on the more important things. Through the refreshing stories and insightful research in Factfulness, your eyes will be opened to the real happenings around you and you will be empowered to see and respond to the opportunities about for you.

The world is not so black and white that it can be split between the West and the rest, us versus them. With the media, activists and environmentalists predicting the end of the world like evangelists of doom, 800 million people languishing in extreme poverty worldwide, and an ever-present threat of nuclear conflict in perpetual limbo, it is perhaps understandable that many people assume that the 21st century world is in crisis. However, is it correct to conclude that everything is therefore terrible and only getting worse? In the book "Factfulness" written by Hans Rosling and co-authored with his son Ola and Ola's partner Anna Rosling offers a series of tools which to help control these misleading instincts that foster a wrong worldview. As a physician who has worked and travelled widely, Rosling encountered many practical puzzles which he wrote alongside anecdotes from his own life. Factfulness offers empiricism and rationality as relief from the stress induced by the steady stream of media alarmism. What better way to unburden your opinions of personal bias and fraught emotion than to derive them from facts substantiated by research? Within this book, you will find: A comprehensive guide to quickly understand the instincts that make us human and how to get the fact-based world view Key takeaways on the most important details of each chapter Why Bill Gates put the book right up at the top of his list of books you should be reading right now The right things you need to worry about Review and Analysis of the book with reference to the new framework on how to think right about the world We know that 800 million are suffering right now. We also know the solutions: peace, schooling, universal basic health care, electricity, clean water, toilets, contraceptives, and microcredits to get market forces started. Yes, the world is still rife with injustice, but not nearly as much as you thought, things are actually getting better. There's no innovation needed to end poverty.

Aufklärung jetzt

Für Vernunft, Wissenschaft, Humanismus und Fortschritt. Eine Verteidigung

Author: Steven Pinker

Publisher: S. Fischer Verlag

Category: Philosophy

Page: 736

View: 3700

Eine leidenschaftliche Antithese zum üblichen Kulturpessimismus und ein engagierter Widerspruch zu dem weitverbreiteten Gefühl, dass die Moderne dem Untergang geweiht ist. Hass, Populismus und Unvernunft regieren die Welt, Wissenschaftsfeindlichkeit macht sich breit, Wahrheit gibt es nicht mehr: Wer die Schlagzeilen von heute liest, könnte so denken. Doch Bestseller-Autor Steven Pinker zeigt, dass das grundfalsch ist. Er hat die Entwicklung der vergangenen Jahrhunderte gründlich untersucht und beweist in seiner fulminanten Studie, dass unser Leben stetig viel besser geworden ist. Heute leben wir länger, gesünder, sicherer, glücklicher, friedlicher und wohlhabender denn je, und nicht nur in der westlichen Welt. Der Grund: die Aufklärung und ihr Wertesystem. Denn Aufklärung und Wissenschaft bieten nach wie vor die Basis, um mit Vernunft und im Konsens alle Probleme anzugehen. Anstelle von Gerüchten zählen Fakten, anstatt überlieferten Mythen zu glauben baut man auf Diskussion und Argumente. Anschaulich und brillant macht Pinker eines klar: Vernunft, Wissenschaft, Humanismus und Fortschritt sind weiterhin unverzichtbar für unser Wohlergehen. Ohne sie wird die Welt auf keinen Fall zu einem besseren Ort für uns alle. »Mein absolutes Lieblingsbuch aller Zeiten.« Bill Gates

Ketika diberi pertanyaan sederhana tentang kecenderungan global, seperti berapa persen populasi dunia yang tinggal dalam kemiskinan dan kenapa populasi dunia bertambah, kita kerap memberikan jawaban yang salah. Bahkan simpanse yang menjawab secara acak memberikan lebih banyak jawaban benar dibandingkan guru, jurnalis, bankir investasi, dan pemenang Nobel. Factfulness menawarkan penjelasan mengapa hal itu terjadi. Ada sepuluh naluri yang mengalihkan perspektif kita—dari kecenderungan untuk membagi dunia menjadi dua kelompok (semacam versi kita dan mereka) sampai cara kita mengonsumsi media dan melihat kemajuan. Factfulness akan mengubah cara kita melihat dunia, memampukan kita merespons krisis dan peluang yang dibawa oleh masa depan. Dari Pendahuluan: Factfulness adalah buku tentang dunia dan bagaimana dunia sesungguhnya. Factfulness juga buku tentang Anda, dan mengapa Anda (serta hampir setiap orang yang pernah saya jumpai) tidak memandang dunia sebagaimana sesungguhnya. Factfulness bercerita tentang apa yang dapat Anda perbuat dalam hal ini, dan bagaimana buku ini akan menjadikan Anda merasa lebih positif, tidak begitu stres, dan lebih mempunyai harapan sewaktu melangkah keluar dari tenda sirkus untuk kembali ke dunia. Jadi, bila Anda lebih berminat untuk menjadi benar alih-alih melanjutkan hidup dalam gelembung Anda; bila Anda bersedia mengubah wawasan Anda tentang dunia; bila Anda siap untuk berpikir kritis menggantikan kebiasaan bereaksi secara naluriah; dan bila Anda merasa rendah hati, ingin tahu, dan siap untuk dibuat takjub—silakan melanjutkan membaca buku ini.
