Thomas Morus war unter dem englischen König Heinrich VIII. Lordkanzler und wurde nach einem Zerwürfnis mit dem Monarchen 1535 hingerichtet. Zu seinem bis heute berühmtesten Werk »Utopia«, das der literarischen Gattung der gesellschaftlichen Zukunftsvisionen den Namen gab, wurde er von Platons Atlantiserzählung inspiriert. Auf einer Insel gelegen, ist Utopia ein republikanischer Idealstaat, in dem die Gleichheit aller Bürger gilt, das Privateigentum abgeschafft ist, Geld und Gold verpönt sind und niemand zum Kriegsdienst gezwungen wird.

The world's grandest theme park is a place known for its cutting-edge robots, awe-inspiring holographics, and white-knuckle thrills. Stretching out beneath a vast golden dome in the desert north of Las Vegas, Utopia attracts some 65,000 visitors a day who travel into the pleasure dome via a gleaming monorail to experience state-of-the-art rides, fireworks, light shows, amazing robotics and even a gambling casino. When serious mishaps start to disrupt the once flawless technology and a popular rollercoaster nearly kills a rider, the brilliant computer engineer who designed much of the technology is summoned to put things right. But on the day that Andrew Warne arrives, Utopia finds itself in the grip of something far more sinister and every man, woman and child trapped in the dome are at risk. As the minutes tick away, Warne's struggle to outwit his opponents becomes increasingly urgent - his teenage daughter is just one of the unsuspecting potential victims amongst the crowd in the park. With hair-raising thrills and heart-stopping twists, Lincoln Child takes the reader on a rollercoaster ride which is a complete tour-de-force.

Thomas Morus wrote his famous novel in 1516. "Utopia" is still one of the world's most widely read books. The later executed scholar, politician and diplomat Morus describes in a fictional act, as he imagines the best possible state of a state. Morus' friend, the humanist Erasmus of Rotterdam, urged publication of the story: A sailor arrives in the wondrous island of Utopia. He lives there for some time and finds an (almost) ideal society in which among other things religious tolerance, equality as well as the promotion of the pursuit of education and democracy forms the basis of the state. People showing off their wealth are not considered in Utopia. Besides work there is enough time for the family, but everyone can live well. In many countries, such a contented society is still a utopia ...

In addition to considering the role of social theory in the imagination of alternative futures, this volume reflects on how social theory may assist us in understanding and appreciating utopia or utopianism as a special topic of interest, a special subject matter, a special analytical focus or a special normative dimension of sociological thinking. Bringing together the latest work from a leading team of social theorists, this volume will be of interest to sociologists, social and political theorists, anthropologists and philosophers.

The most comprehensive study of ideology and utopia since Karl Mannheim's work of the 1930s, Utopia and Revolution can be understood as turning classical political theory on its head or, perhaps, inside out. Instead of the usual summary of how English radical theologies contributed to the revolutionary process, Lasky shows how such political theology of the mid-seventeenth century became the backbone of the natural history of revolutionary disasters. In a remarkable feat of scholarship in intellectual history, Lasky charts the course of this historic entanglement over some five turbulent centuries of Western history. In so doing, he traces the ideological extension of the human personality through the writings of political theorists, philosophers, poets, and historians.

Breathtaking and suspenseful, Utopia's twists and turns will keep readers guessing until the very last page, and may leave some wondering whether this is a vision of the future that is not too far away.

For more than 2,000 years utopian visionaries have sought to create a blueprint of the ideal society: from Plato to HG Wells, from Cloudcuckooland to Shangri-La, the utopian impulse has generated a vast body of work, encompassing philosophy and political theory, classical literature and science fiction. And yet these utopian dreams have often turned to nightmare, as utopia gives way to its dark reflection, dystopia. Utopia takes the reader on a journey through these imaginary worlds, charting the progress of utopian ideas from their origins within the classical world, to the rebirth of utopian ideals in the Middle Ages. Later we see the emergence of socialist and feminist ideas; while the twentieth century was to be dominated by expressions of totalitarian oppression. From the novel to the political manifesto, from satire to science fiction, utopias have always reflected the age that gave rise to them, and this guide will explore this historical context, offering both an analysis of the key texts and an account of their political and cultural background. Today, it is claimed that we are witnessing the death of utopia, as increasingly the ideals that give rise to them are undermined or dismissed. These arguments are explored and evaluated here, and contemporary examples of utopian thought used to demonstrate the enduring relevance of the utopian tradition.

Thomas More's Utopia remains indisputably the most potent work in the genre of writing that it initiated and in fact named. Since it was published in 1516 - in a Tudor-ruled England responding to the wave of humanist thought sweeping across Europe - this fantasy voyage has inspired centuries of social reformers, who have embraced More's fiction as a realistic blueprint for a new, ideal society. On the literary side, writers from Jonathan Swift to George Orwell have plied the genre More invented, and yet none has arrived at a conclusion more prophetic than the original: that the dogged quest for an imagined ideal generates doubt that this ideal would be as attractive in practice as in theory, and that, given what we know of human nature, such an ideal could ever be implemented. In Utopia: An Elusive Vision Alistair Fox places More's masterwork in the context of the reform aspirations of early-sixteenth-century European humanists, tracing the stages of its composition to show how and why the book came to be inherently paradoxical and showing us why the book in many ways presaged the rise of Martin Luther and the watershed Protestant Reformation. Fox lucidly explores the complex, equivocal nature of More's vision, which, he contends, was conditioned not only by More's recognition that people's desire for ideal social order conflicts with many of their most basic impulses but also by his propensity for seeing most issues simultaneously from contradictory perspectives. This paradox and tension led More to create a fiction that, according to Fox, allows human imperfection to interrogate the validity of the "ideal" society the fiction presents, without confirming or subverting it. With Utopia More encourages readers to explore what he reveals to be a perpetual dilemma in utopianism itself. Fox concludes that, by thus encompassing and provoking the full range of reactions that subsequent utopias and "dystopias" would likely elicit, More's Utopia is both the prototype and epitome of the utopian genre itself. Fox's engaging study is the most extensive treatment of Utopia to date, examining the work as one which evolved in response to More's changing emotional perceptions and treating More's text as a vehicle for intellectual exploration rather than a definitive proclamation. Utopia: An Elusive Vision, replete with historical detail and an overview of criticism of More's text through four centuries, allows readers to discern for themselves the features that contribute to Utopia's intellectual and rhetorical complexity.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2005 im Fachbereich Geschichte Europa - and. Lander - Mittelalter, Fruhe Neuzeit, Note: 2,0, Albert-Ludwigs-Universitat Freiburg, 10 Quellen im Literaturverzeichnis, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Thomas Morus spielte mit seiner Schrift Utopia" ein grosse Rolle unter den Utopisten der fruhen Neuzeit. Sein Werk stand am Anfang eines neuzeitlichen Bewusstseins. Durch seine Schrift pragte er auch den Begriff der Utopie, "ein konstruierter Idealzustand irdischer Verhaltnisse und menschlicher Beziehungen." [Schweikle, Gunther und Irmgard (Hrsg.): Metzler-Literatur-Lexikon: Begriffe und Definitionen, Stuttgart 1990, S. 482.] Als Vorbild diente ihm dafur Platons Politeia," das erste utopische Werk der Geschichte, genauso wie die Aufzeichnungen des Florentiner Seefahrers Amerigo Vespucci uber seine Brasilienreise. Beide Einflusse lassen sich in der Utopia" erkennen. [Vgl. Sussmuth, Hans: Studien zur Utopia des Thomas Morus. Ein Beitrag zur Geistesgeschichte des 16. Jahrhunderts, Munster 1967, S. 36-52.] Sie besteht aus zwei Buchern, in welchen sich Kritik am status quo des 16. Jahrhunderts und Ideal in Utopia gegenuberstehen. Auf diese Gegenuberstellung und das Verhaltnis zur Realitat der Verbesserungsvorschlage soll in dieser Arbeit anhand des Strafrechts, der Agrarpolitik, der Aussenpolitik, der Finanz- und Rechtspolitik und des Privateigentums genauer eingegangen werden."

Radical political thought of the 20th century was dominated by utopia, but the failure of communism in Eastern Europe and its disavowal in China has brought on the need for a new model of utopian thought. This book thus seeks to redefine the concept of utopia and bring it to bear on today's politics. The original essays, contributed by key thinkers such as Gianni Vattimo and Jean-Luc Nancy, highlight the connection between utopian theory and practice. The book reassesses the legacy of utopia and conceptualizes alternatives to the neo-liberal, technocratic regimes prevalent in today's world. It argues that only utopia in its existential sense, grounded in the lived time and space of politics, can distance itself from mainstream ideology and not be at the service of technocratic regimes, while paying attention to the material conditions of human life. Existential Utopia offers a new and exciting interpretation of utopia in contemporary culture and a much-needed intervention into the philosophical and political discussion of utopian thinking that is both accessible to students and comprehensive.
