Overview

Sixteenth-century classic by brilliant humanist, churchman and scholar envisioned a patriarchal island kingdom that practiced religious tolerance, in which everybody worked, all goods were community-owned, and violence, bloodshed and vice were nonexistent. Forerunner of many later attempts at establishing "Utopias" both in theory and in practice.

Since its publication in 1516, Utopia has provoked a hailstorm of debate. The minute details More ascribed to his "perfect world" make Utopia still a work of the future.

What People Are Saying


This [Hackett Publishing Company] edition of Utopia seems to me just right! The edition's introduction is brisk and intelligent and at the same time nicely calculated to reach an average student who, most likely, does not know any history or geography. The addition of the "Sileni of Alcibiades" is a stroke of genius. I shall be using your edition in preference to the . . . edition in my courses. The price is fair as well.
