    1. Thomas More s life blah blah feudalism, in which virtually all power resided with enormous white ducks while the peasants had to wear roller skates even in bed The late fifteenth and early sixteenth centuries blah blah Renaissance, a flowering of platform heel shoes and massive shagging blah blah Italy blah blah large glands Aspects of this blah blah the ducks Blah blah discovery of smaller ducks, at first denied by Pope Barbary VII Vasco da Gama proved ducks were American not from Byzantium.Hum [...]

    2. The term utopia in the way we use it today, to refer to an ideal but unattainable state, comes from this book, which More wrote in 1516 The form is political critique disguised as fantasy disguised as travelogue More casts himself as the recorder of Raphael Hythloday s travels to the island of Utopia, where, despite their lack of Christianity, the people are closer to realizing the Christian ideal society through rational government than Europe ever was Today serious criticism doesn t have to mo [...]

    3. The first time I heard of Utopia was in the movie Ever After A Cinderella Story starring Drew Barry Super cute movie, and I am not a big Cinderella fan Danielle, or Cinderella, reads this book constantly, because it was the last thing her father gave her before he died It is her last link to him I have been sort of curious about this book since then Utopia is about the perfect nation It has wealth The Prince doesn t take much There is no thievery, everyone well mostly is morally good Gold and fa [...]

    4. Interesting, mostly just because it s cool to see what people or at least Thomas More considered to be an ideal society back then Because really, it isn t There s a lot that I thought was really strange about Utopia Latin for no place , but here s what I remember most when parents are considering marrying their children off, they have the two teenagers stand naked in front of each other accompanied by dependable chaperones, of course so they can make sure neither of them has any weird deformitie [...]

    5. This book was published in 1516 and it s divided into two parts The first one made my eyes feel exhausted, so I can sum up all that just by saying that More found his friend Peter and this one introduced him to a fella named Raphael, a man who visited several countries to satisfy his desire to see the world He shared some opinions of the political scenario of his time a bit familiar whether you are talking about yesterday s kingdoms or today s democratic governments, some things never change and [...]

    6. From the Greek meaning happy place, Utopia is an ideal country described by Raphael Hythlodaeus, who observed his organization during his many travels.Based on a collectivist basis, since the property does not exist, life in this company has some advantages 6 hours of daily work compared to France in 1840, the legal working week was 78 hours , Insurance of food to eat, and be properly dressed, no death penalty at that time in England a simple larceny enough to be hanged , no war the state uses i [...]

    8. I read this book as part of a reading project I have undertaken with some other nerdy friends in which we read The Novel A Biography and some of the other texts referenced by Schmidt In 1516, some guy called Thomas More put out this little book describing a fictional place called Utopia What kills me about this little book is that More wrote it in Latin Latin I can barely write in English most days.So this island of Utopia shows a completely organized society where everyone seems to be exception [...]

    9. Thomas More is traveling in the Low Countries when he sees his friend, Peter Giles Giles introduces him to a well traveled friend of his, Raphael Hythloday.Raphael speaks of many countries and their policies and laws, and freely criticizes the laws of their own countries.He then begins speaking of a country, Utopia, which he thinks is ruled very well and is a perfect country.More begs Raphael to speak of Utopia, and he does He first tells of their towns, which are all as identical as possible, [...]

    10. You wouldn t abandon ship in a storm just because you couldn t control the winds Thomas More, UtopiaAfter reading Hilary Mantel s amazing first two Booker prizing winning books of her Henry VIII trilogy Wolf Hall and Bring Up the Bodies , I felt I needed to actually bust into Thomas More s Utopia How could I consider myself educated and not have at least tasted a bit of More s utopian ideal, his veiled criticisms of European culture and values, and his unobtainable vision of the ideal society At [...]

    11. More s fusion of Christianity, socialism, and republicanism reflects his humanist conception of an ideal society, and in so doing constitutes criticism of contemporary English society More argues that virtue is natural and something for which all humans have an innate desire He characterizes virtue concretely than most philosophers of his day, defining it as doing the utmost to increase happiness found primarily in simple pleasures for all The state should remain minimal and intervene only when [...]

    13. This is one of the worst books I have ever read Poorly written, annoyingly condescending, ridiculously simplistic and than anything, stupid No wonder why the commies Lenin and others commemorated More in the early days of communist Russia his ideals are to get rid of the beggars by forced labor, allow no private ownership of anything, no specialization of labor, yet still have a highly artistic agrarian society, everything totally equal, except for the temporary ruling class a belief in what Hi [...]

    14. In a classic what was I thinking moment, I purchased Utopia, a 600 year old book billed on as a fiction and socio political satire I am two thirds of the way through the book, and I am guessing that satire meant something else in the early 1500s.The book actually reads as a long winded, mostly one sided conversation, almost like reading ancient philosophy As I plowed further and further into the book, I began to create furrows of my own While I suppose it is unfair to inject today s world into t [...]

    17. The perfect society as a critique of Tudor England30 November 2013 I was going to open this commentary with where no man has gone before until I realised that the opening to Star Trek is actually Space, the final frontier and then rambles on a bit before saying to boldly go where no man has gone before You may be wondering why I am connecting a book written by a 16th century clergy man with a very popular science fiction series from the 1960s, and in some cases I may be asking that question mys [...]

    18. This is another book that I had to read because the title become a word in EnglishI liked the fact that Thomas More was looking for solutions solutions we are still looking for in this age of globalization when every country has their own utopian vision Perhaps that is the utopian paradox how can we all live in peace with differing definitions of utopianism

    21. I very much enjoyed this classic piece of literature Unlike some other reviewers, I don t think it is meant to be a model for a real society It is in fact a quixotic idea of what a perfect society might look like, but I am not going to criticize a work of fiction just because it is not necessarily a realistic plan for a real state country world.That being said, I do believe the purpose of More s work is to make people seriously consider some of the things that are wrong with our culture and how [...]

    22. From the Intro to the Kindle edition More s Utopia was written in Latin, and is in two parts, of which the second, describing the place Greek text or Nusquama, as he called it sometimes in his letters Nowhere , was probably written towards the close of 1515 This was a surprise to me as I thought utopia meant someplace idyllic By definition, an imagined place or state of things in which everything is perfect Synonyms are paradise, heaven on earth , Eden, Garden of Eden, Shangri La, Elysium The na [...]

    23. If you need a reason to be a pinko communist sissy, I imagine you can do a little better than this The Greek word for utopia actually means no place or nonsense For the two or three of you who still haven t figured out why people use Marx s Manifesto as toilet paper, you might actually appreciate the ideas presented here, but bear in mind that it s likely not even Thomas More himself was taking it seriously You could call this a work of fiction as much as one of philosophy or political theory in [...]

    24. This was a fantastic book I am really surprised I hadn t heard of this author or this book before It has been quite a while since a book was able to affect and stimulate me on an intellectual level Utopia is a great work that touches on so many ideas that were surprisingly well ahead of his time He developed theories on Communism, capitalism, philosophy, religion, social justice centuries before big names such as Marx, Engles, Smith, Locke, Rawls, etc came onto the scene and told us the best way [...]

    25. For if you suffer your people to be ill educated, and their manners to be corrupted from their infancy, and then punish them for those crimes to which their first education disposed them, what else is to be concluded from this, but that you first make thieves and then punish them.Well this was quite a surprise After I read a few pages of this book, I thought that I was going to hate every single minute of reading it, but now I can say that I quite enjoyed it.Utopia is a book about a good place , [...]
