Get this from a library. Utopia and its enemies. [George Kateb] -- The core of this book is the confrontation of utopianism with the wide range of criticism of it.

The last half of the book dealing with anti-utopian criticisms of the Utopian ends themselves is by far the most challenging and original part of Utopia and Its Enemies. Kateb here sees that, in spite of all the current talk about the anti-utopian “lessons” to be learned from the experience of totalitarianism, there is a deeper and subtler.

Utopia was not always an island, Hythloday says, nor was it always called Utopia. Its first name was Abraxa, perhaps meaning “Holy Name,” “without breeches,” or “waterless.” Utopus, the conqueror of the place and the founder of Utopia itself, civilized the natives of Abraxa and had them, along with his own soldiers, cut up and dig away the fifteen miles of ground that connected.

Utopia Summary. In Book 1, Thomas More (not only the author, but also a main character) arrives in Antwerp on a business trip where he runs into an old friend, Peter Giles.

1 Abraxa likely refers to Abraxas, the highest of heavens described by the second-century Greek Gnostic Basilides. 2 The fifty-four cities of Utopia parallel the fifty-three counties that made up England and Wales in More’s time, plus one for London.

3 The name of Utopia’s major city, Amaurot, is a play on the Greek word amauroton, meaning dim or obscure. Some of its predictions, like the proliferation of automation and AI in the fast food industry, are becoming true years later. Second half of the book describes perfect Utopian society.

A utopia (/ j uː ˈ t oʊ p i ə / yoo-TOH-pee-ə) is an imagined community or society that possesses highly desirable or nearly perfect qualities for its citizens.

Utopia is not your average island for many a reason, but its social organization and hierarchies are probably the most obvious difference between there and, well, anywhere else. Often considered to be proto-Communist, Utopia depicts a society that seems to have almost no class-system, no hierarchies (aristocracy, plebs, etc.), and very rigid.

One day, while returning to his house in Antwerp after a church service, More runs into Giles, who is speaking with an old, sunburned, long-bearded, and cloaked stranger from Portugal; this man is named Raphael takes him to be a mariner.

Giles exclaims that he was just about to escort Hythloday to More’s lodgings for a meeting, because the old man is well-traveled and knows.

Utopia is an ideal community or society possessing a perfect socio-politico-legal system. The term has been used to describe both intentional communities that attempt to create an ideal society, and fictional societies portrayed in literature.

It has spawned other concepts, most prominently dystopia. Many books that deal with "utopia" are. One of the most famous pieces of such thought and writing is Thomas More’s Utopia, a work so famous that its title has come to mean an ideal state.
