Utopia - Thomas More

Overview

Thomas More's Utopia is a Christian-humanist view 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 the synthesis is Christ's gospel of caring for the poor, the oppressed and the downtrodden.

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

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

Humor and Parody

Utopia means nowhere...

The political system is called a Sty (every 30 houses are divided into Sty's). He is calling the people of Great Britain pigs.
