HASH(0x9a00a06c) von 5 Sternen A classic that everyone should read 2. September 2013
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I've read Utopia several times during my life and obtained this electronic edition so I could access it for reference purposes. Thomas More was an intellectual orthodox Catholic executed by Henry VIII for refusing to recognize either Henry's divorce or his break with Rome and establishment of the Anglican Church.

I have always been in the camp of those who see Utopia as a satire to postulate what a society ruled entirely by reason might look like. In modern times, you hear the "Utopian" adjective brandished about in all manner of contexts by people who have never read More's work. The modern dictionary defines Utopian as an ideal state of perfection, but More's Utopia hardly lives up to that ideal from a modern Western Democratic perspective. More's Utopia is an oppressively conformist society which often parallels modern communist ideas. What initially appears to be an ideal logical and happy reason-

I enjoyed getting in the mind of thomas more. Although it s not an easy read, which is to be expected, as it was authored about 400 years ago.

HASH(0x9a00aa8c) von 5 Sternen It is literature, don't take it too seriously 11. August 2013
Von Clarinerd85 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
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 to improve upon it. I found myself highlighting scores of passages, particularly those about education. (Full disclosure: I am a teacher, so naturally I have idealistic views about education.) More writes in very long, drawn-out sentences, but the basic idea of one of my favorite passages is, "If we do not properly educate people so they cannot be financially independent and so resort to stealing, what else are we doing but making thieves and then punishing them?" As a teacher for at-risk students, I see this behavior all too often, and I do believe that many of society's ills can be corrected in youth if only schools have the resources.

My main issue with this book was More's writing style. As I mentioned before, he writes in extremely long sentences, mostly separated by semi-colons, which can make for tedious reading. Sometimes one sentence takes up a whole page. Other than that, I enjoyed the work.

HASH(0x9a00aa98) von 5 Sternen A timely read 6. November 2013
Von Paul Swagerty - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

Many of the thoughts expressed here in this book our leaders would be wise to consider. To move from a government of the ruling class vs. the rest of us to a government of, by, and for the people would be novel.
HASH(0x9a00abb8) von 5 Sternen Worth the Time to Read 21. Mai 2014
Von Ryan Adler - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

Even the most high level discussion on the history of political writings includes a mention of Utopia. It had been on my list for years, so I sat down and read it. I hadn't realized how much of it was a proto-hippie pipe dream. It presupposes a perfectibility of man usually reserved for crazies, fools, and Berkeley-Boulder types. That being stated, I was surprised to read something so freely published back in the day that I would presume to have been intellectually heretical for the 16th Century. It's such a naked level of allegory as to make Gulliver's Travels read as though it were written as nothing more than early science fiction.
