"Utopia" ist der Titel eines 1516 von Thomas Morus in lateinischer Sprache verfassten philosophischen Dialogs. Die Schilderung einer fernen "idealen" Gesellschaft gab den Anstoß zum Genre der Sozialutopie. Die Erstveröffentlichung geschah auf Betreiben des berühmten Humanisten Erasmus von Rotterdam 1516 in Löwen, weitere Drucke folgten 1517 in Paris und 1518 in Basel. Die erste deutsche Übersetzung – unter dem Titel "Von der wunderbarlichen Innsul Utopia genannt, das andere Buch" – erschien 1524. Rahmenhandlung sind die Erzählungen eines Seemannes, der eine Zeit lang bei den Utopiern gelebt haben will. Der Roman beschreibt eine auf rationalen Gleichheitsgrundsätzen, Arbeitsamkeit und dem Streben nach Bildung basierende Gesellschaft mit demokratischen Grundzügen. In der Republik ist aller Besitz gemeinschaftlich, Anwälte sind unbekannt, und unabwendbare Kriege werden bevorzugt mit ausländischen Söldnern geführt. Das Buch war so prägend, dass man fortan jeden Roman, in dem eine erfundene, positive Gesellschaft dargestellt wird, als Utopie oder utopischen Roman bezeichnete. Bedeutende Utopien nach "Utopia" waren "A Modern Utopia" von H. G. Wells, "Ecotopia" von Ernest Callenbach und "Island" von Aldous Huxley. Das Genre des utopischen Romans wird heute oft als Bereich der Science-Fiction aufgefasst.

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.

Addressing such issues as religious pluralism, women's rights, state-sponsored education, colonialism, and justified warfare, Utopia seems remarkably contemporary nearly five centuries after it was written, and it remains a foundational text in philosophy and political theory.".

Sir Thomas More wrote Utopia in 1516 in Latin. His Utopia is a fictional island, whose society, religion and politics he explores. Critics do not believe that the island depicted More's idea of the perfect society, but rather that he hoped to throw the politics of his own time into a new light by contrasting them with his imagined island society. The work references Plato's Republic.

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.

A grim futuristic account of Egyptian society in the year 2023, Utopia takes readers on a chilling journey beyond the gated communities of the North Coast where the wealthy are insulated from the bleakness of life outside the walls. When a young man and a girl break out from this bubble of affluence in order to see for themselves the lives of their impoverished fellow Egyptians they are confronted by a world that they had not imagined possible. 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.

Since the election of Mayor David Miller in November 2003, Toronto has experienced a wave of civic pride and enthusiasm not felt in decades. At long last, Torontonians see their city as a place of possibility and potential. Visions of a truly workable, liveable and world-class city are once again dancing in citizens’ heads. In the past two years, this spirit has, directly or indirectly, manifested itself in multifarious forms: in writer Sheila Heti’s sui generis lecture series, Trampoline Hall; in the transformation of derelict hotels such as the Drake and the Gladstone into cultural hotspots; in renewed interest in waterfront revitalization and public transportation; in exciting, controversial architectural developments such as the OCAD building, the expansion of the ROM and the AGO; in the [murmur] project, which catalogues stories about Toronto neighbourhoods and broadcasts them to people’s cell phones; in the explosion of the local independent music scene. uTOpia aims to capture and chronicle that spirit, collecting writing by many of the people inspired by and involved in these projects. Featuring passionate, visionary essays by thirty-four different journalists, artists, thinkers, architects and activists, uTOpia is a compendium of ideas, opinions and strategies. The anthology explores plans to redevelop the Island airport into a Ward’s Island-style community; how the Zeidler family is energizing artist-run centres; what a car-free Kensington Market might mean; the necessity and beauty of laneway housing; the way past efforts to combat devastating developments like the Spadina Expressway have shaped current activism; what a utopian Toronto might look like mapped out; and much, much more. Playful, erudite and accessible, uTOpia writes Toronto as it is shared and created by the people who live here. Though it is by no means a complete picture of what is happening in the city right now, it will hopefully show that what was once just a T-shirt slogan – I Heart T.O. – is now genuine, heartfelt sentiment. Contributors include Howard Akler, Andrew Alfred-Duggan, Jacob Allderdice, Bert Archer, James Bow, Nicole Cohen, Jonny Dovercourt, Dale Duncan, Philip Evans, Mark Fram, Misha Glouberman, Chris Hardwicke, Sheila Heti, Alfred Holden, Luis Jacob, Lorraine Johnson, Edward Keenan, Mark Kingwell, John Lorinc, Sally McKay, Heather McLean, Dave Meslin, Shawn Micallef, Derek Murr, Ninjalicious, Darren O’Donnell, Planning Action, Barbara Rahder, Dylan Reid, Erik Rutherford, Jeffrey Stinson, Deanne Taylor, Conan Tobias, Stéphanie Verge, Adam Vaughan and Marlena Zuber.

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.

Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2009 im Fachbereich Geschichte - Weltgeschichte - Altertum, Note: 2,0, Universitat Leipzig, Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Ach, umsonst auf allen Landerkarten spahst du nach dem seligen Gebiet, wo der Freiheit ewig gruner Garten, wo der Menschheit schone Jugend bluht."1 Dieser Auszug aus einem Gedicht Friedrich Schillers wurde schon zu meiner Schulzeit behandelt und druckt meines Erachtens sehr gut das Sehnen der Menschen nach einer besseren Welt aus. Nicht nur in Gedichten, Mythen und religiosen Werken, die goldene Zeitalter" behandeln, ist diese Sehnsucht zu finden, sondern auch in einer Form, die schon seit der Antike schriftlich, klar strukturiert und durchdacht wurde: die der Utopie. Sie soll den Leser zum Nachdenken uber soziale und politische Aspekte einer Gesellschaft anregen.2 Die bekanntesten Utopien ihrer Art sind wohl, ohne Zweifel, die von den Inseln Atlantis und Utopia und faszinieren seit jeher eine Vielzahl von Menschen. Erstere, in der Antike von Platon verfasst, erzahlt von der Insel im atlantischen Meer, die sich als Ziel setzte, die ganze bekannte Welt zu erobern und dann doch an einem kleinen Stadtstaat (Ur-Athen) scheiterte. Zweitere, von Thomas Morus zu Beginn des 16. Jahrhunderts niedergeschrieben, erzahlt von einer Insel, die im kompletten Gegensatz zur vorherrschenden Gesellschaft in Europa stand und die die Moglichkeit bot, sich vollig von den realen Verhaltnissen loszulosen bzw. sich unabhangig von Zeit und Raum eine perfektionierte Gesellschaft, ohne Ungerechtigkeiten, zu ertraumen. Beide Werke gewahren hier weitreichende Einblicke in den Mechanismus der gewunschten bzw. gefurchteten Gesellschaft, sowie in die Details des Alltagslebens der Menschen. Doch welche Entwicklung der Utopie, seit der Antike, lasst sich erkennen? Wie viel von Platons konstruktiver Leistung ist noch in der Utopia" des Thomas Morus sichtbar?Was verbindet die Werke der beiden Autoren miteinander? Das Ziel dieser Arbeit ist es, diese Fra"
