Sir Thomas More's Utopia is a focal point in the tradition of the genre, and More's contemplation of a society removed from daily struggle to a place of ease, has had a powerful and lasting effect on subsequent visions of the future. Dystopian fiction is the natural correlative of this literary mode and presents visions of imaginary worlds ...

  • Second Way To Achiever A Semi Utopia
    470 words
    Virtually every culture has strived to achieve a Utopian society. A Utopian society is basically a society, which has surpassed aggression, war, hate, and crime while establishing "peaceful" and orderly communities. A Utopian society could not exist with the individuality that nature has bestowed on the human race. So long as humans remain unique in their state of mind, utopia is a mere fantasy. To work around this problem a society must adapt itself to achieve a utopian-like state. This can be ...

Man is competitive by nature and would never be happy in a society where everyone is equal and there is no chance of advancement. Sir Thomas More dreamt of a land that was much like England but could ...

    6,256 words
    The historical Thomas More, the author of Utopia, was an extraordinarily complicated man who tied up all the threads of his life in his heroic death.

Everywhere-in church, government, society, and even scholarship-profession and practice stood separated by an abyss. The great difficulty of irony is that we cannot a...

Added to the forum of debate are two Renaissance writers, Sir Thomas More and Nicole Machiavelli. Machiavelli's book, The Prince, a guide to how a prince should run his nation, exhibits the fact that human nature is inherently selfish. In contras...
