Utopia: On the Best State of a Republic and on the New Island of Utopia

Front Cover
The Floating Press, Jan 1, 2009 - Philosophy - 176 pages
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.
