      Also, their method of treating a defeated enemy with clemency has proved effective. The number and location of the cities is specified, and the capital city, Amaurot, is described in considerable detail. Most scholars see it as a comment on or criticism of 16th-century Catholicism, for the evils of More's day are laid out in Book I and in many ways apparently solved in Book II. In many cultures, societies, and religions, there is some myth or memory of a distant past when humankind lived in a primitive and simple state but at the same time one of perfect happiness and fulfillment. Another Renaissance attitude attributed to the Utopians by Hythloday was that inquiries into the secrets of nature, in matters of anatomy and medicine, for example, were permissible since they could be beneficial to mankind and also could lead to a greater appreciation of the complexities of God's creation.

      A wide variety of intentional communities with some type of faith-based ideas have also started across the world. The Utopians follows a keen sense of virtue and rationalism. Euthanasia is advocated. Novel describes the discovery of mythical island Bensalem by the crew of a lost European ship, end their exploration of this utopian land and their central scientific institution - "Salomon's House".

      Summary and Analysis Book II: The Discourse on Utopia: Philosophy Summary The learned men of Utopia are given to disputing over various questions of moral philosophy, but their chief concern is in trying to determine the source and nature of happiness. So one can see why utopia, in this sense, is not political: it does not offer the means of achieving the end that is nonetheless sought. Utopia is often spoken of in a general, imprecise way, to characterize any conception of the state that is considered an unrealizable ideal. Remember that printing was a fairly recent invention, scarcely 50 years old, and that it was still in its infancy in England when Utopia was written. Utopia is More's reflection on his own society. This connects the imagery of perfection and gardens to the themes of virtue and public services.

The book tells the story of Vasco de Quiroga who, using Thomas More's Utopia as his blueprint, forged a commune on Mexico City's outskirts.

It has been one hundred years since the remaining billion or so humans in the world have seen the light of day. Raphael then travels farther and finds the island of Utopia, where he spends five years observing the customs of the natives.

An accused person pleads his own case with assistance from the judge. The slaves are either from other countries prisoners of war, people condemned to die, or poor people or are the Utopian criminals.

Stretching back years, the history of Utopia is well preserved. The name Raphael, though, may have been chosen by More to remind his readers of the archangel Raphael who is mentioned in the Book of Tobit ;16;14, 16, 18; also in chs.

Accordingly, there were no motives whatsoever for war or oppression. All able-bodied citizens must work; thus unemployment is eradicated, and the length of the working day can be minimized: the people only have to work six hours a day although many willingly work for longer.

Birth-giving, often felt as the divider that cannot be avoided in discussions of women's rights and roles, has been shifted onto elaborate biological machinery that functions to offer an enriched embryonic experience, When a child is born, it spends most of its time in the children's ward with peers.

Clearly, Hythloday himself is in sympathy with those doctrines. Ecotopia by Ernest Callenbach Imagines an ecostate, which seceded from the USA inand lives in sentimental co-existence with nature - the working week is reduced to 20 hours, bus travel is free and trees are planted on old boulevards.

Tone[ edit ] Utopia has a more playful tone than one might think. These actions, necessary for the preservation or propagation of life, are ordained by providence to be pleasurable.

If the island suffers from overpopulation, colonies are set up on the mainland. In Utopia, there is no problem of traveling bands of rogues, nor is it possible for an individual to escape his civic obligations by traveling to another city.

In symbolic terms, the Utopians enjoy a pure Eden-like life, free of many real world concerns. One of the earlier feminist utopias that imagines complete separatism is Charlotte Perkins Gilman 's Herland Hythloday concludes that these traveling individuals remain just as profitable and useful to the state as if they never left.

The services are interdenominational in character. Feminism[ edit ] Utopias have been used to explore the ramifications of genders being either a societal construct or a biologically "hard-wired" imperative or some mix of the two. Summary and Analysis Book II: The Discourse on Utopia: Philosophy Summary The learned men of Utopia are given to disputing over various questions of moral philosophy, but their chief concern is in trying to determine the source and nature of happiness.Is that book not an example of a dystopia, or at the very least a "dystopia disguised as utopia"?
