توماس مور كما هو معروف هو أول من صاغ هذه الكلمة يوتوبيا وهي تعني في لغتها الأصلية :ليس في مكان وهكذا راح يتصور مور في كتابه هذا المجتمع مثالي كما هكذا بدأت بذور فلسفة المدينة الفاضلة وربما الاشتراكية أيضا بشكل طفيف :::::::::::::: إن نموذج مور لهو نموذج خيالي بحت حتى في اختياره للمكان فهو ليس موجود على...

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 bla...

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 o...

The first time I heard of Utopia was in the movie Ever After: A Cinderella Story starring Drew Barrymore. 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...

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 con...

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 F...

Ya abi şimdi tamam da olmaz ki böyle ama. Yani saygı duyuyorum adama . Eyvalla. Anlatıyo güzel güzel. İşte bi ada varmış. Adı Ütopia 'ymış. Orda hayat çok güzelmiş. Şimdi detay veremeyeceğim. Şöyle özetleyeyim; bu hayatta yaşadığımız saçmalıkların hiç biri yok. Herşey mükemmel. Kanun düzen tıkır...

(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...

كلنا نحلم بذلك المكان الجميل، المليء بالفراشات! إذا كنت تعتقد أن مثل هذا المكان غير موجود على أرض الواقع، فأنت مخطىء تماماً! إنه موجود! وهناك شخص واحد زاره وعاد قبل مدة كي يخبرنا عن مباهجه وعن مدى روعته وإبهاره! هذا الشخص هو رافائيل هايثلوداي، راوي قصة :: يوتوبيا:: :) يوتوبيا (المدينة الفاضلة) ليست...

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...
