Thomas Moore's Utopia


Thomas More's Utopia is a Christia-humanist vie of an ideal society

More does not simply offer a theoretical view, but provides specifics for how to create this world

Utopia offers a Christianized form of Plato's Republic

Utopia- The last great Christian synthesis of the Renaissance

The Christian aspect of synthesis is Christ's gospel of caring for the poor, the oppressed and the downtrodden

More wrote Utopia with a comedic tone, allowing him to speak his truth while telling deeper story

The Platonic , Republican tradition is the Greek aspect of the synthesis

Use of humor or parody

Utopia means nowhere(title is a joke)

The name he gives to the British precints is a sty which is where pigs live. He calls Britain a Pigs Sty

Division of property

He divided every 30 houses into different precincts called styes

Communal ownership of land there is no such thing as private ownership of land

There are no locks on the doors whivh are rotated every ten years

Utopian Working Life

Communistic lifestye

Agriculture is the most important job on the island

Why does Utopia use slavery

Every household has 2 slaves that are either criminals people from other countries

Utopian government

Welfare state, free hospitals for everyone, premarital sex is punished by a life of celibacy and adlutery is punished by enslavement

Social Critique of Great Britain

Contrasts the contentious social life of European states with perfectly orderly reasonable social arrangements of the Utopia
