- The historical Thomas More, the author of Utopia, was an extraordinarily complicated man who tied up all the threads of his life in his heroic death. The Utopia is the sort of complicated book that we should expect from so complicated a man. It is heavy with irony, but then irony was the experience of life in the Sixteenth Century.
- By the beginning of the sixteenth century, before the deaths of Michelangelo or even Leonardo da Vinci, the renaissance movement in Italy had pretty much run itself out. In northern Europe, however (in Germany, the Netherlands, Spain, France, and England) humanism was just coming into its own.
- Volumes and volumes could be written about communism, but in fact, the actual Communist Manifesto is a mere forty pages. Karl Marx, the principal former of communism as we know it now, later wrote many books fulfilling the outline or skeleton of communism, which is the Communist Manifesto.
- Sir Thomas More wrote a novel named Utopia about a country that existed only in his mind. More used the story to explore his views and feelings about politics and government. People still believe that the story holds truths that are relevant today even though More wrote Utopia during the Renaissance.
- Someone said,”Human beings are the animals who create utopia.” If men lived in a world where circumstances were very vitiated, they would need to accept the impossibility of meaning in secular life. In the early Sixteen-century, More’s Utopia was published and struck his generation.
- During the 19th century many attempts were made to actually establish communities which followed the beliefs of a utopian society. Most were experiments in utopian socialism. Although they differed considerably in their specific views, most of them agreed that ideal societies could be created without much difficulty.
- More’s Utopia, of course, has never been achieved; perhaps it never will be achieved – nor should ever be sought. But this comment on European society, in his time, reflects the great challenges that have faced societies throughout history.
- The book Utopia, by Thomas More, explains what a perfect world would look like. Utopia is simply a word used to define what can generally be described as the consummate dream of the best level of Human existence. Every person has thought of, at least once in his life, that it would be nice if there were no disease, no crime, no poverty, and/or for some other improvement in the Human condition.
- The theme of Huxley’s Brave New World is community, identity, and stability. Each of these three themes represents what a Brave New World society needs to have in order to survive. According to the new world controllers, community is a result of identity and stability, identity is a part of genetic engineering, and stability is what everyone desires to achieve.
- Sir Thomas More’s Utopia has been labeled as “the first original story by a known Englishman.” This Englishman, Sir Thomas More, was a noted statesman, author, and Archbishop of Canterbury who boldly opposed the divorce and remarriage of the overbearing King Henry VIII and because of this was unjustly beheaded.
- Private property is abolished in Utopia, and society is communally organized in such a way that there is no shortage and that everyone has work, food, a home and opportunities for cultural expression. Sounds great, eh? Would you like to live there, and if not, why? Your answer should take account of More’s context (why he wrote Utopia?) and should be supported by reference to the text.
- The making of America was a collaboration of colonial experimentation, a unique blend of different people and culture, and a slow emmergence of concerted political ideals. Some colonies had measureable success, some did not, and one entirely dissappeared.
- Can contemporary discourse presume a community of interest? In order to answer this question, one is forced to first answer the question, can language be used to reveal anything new? If the answer is yes, then how can it do this and how can we employ it to do this for us.
- St. Thomas More is probably one of the most respected figures of the late Renaissance era. Catholics and Non-Catholics alike look to More at least on a literary level. Therefore, what better way is there to honor his greatest work than by writing about it? However, we must also keep in mind that Utopia is his (Thomas More’s) most misunderstood writing (Campbell 25).
- What is utopia? According to The Random House Dictionary, utopia is a place or state of political or social perfection based on the novel Utopia by Thomas More (Random House 976). Most people can not picture this definition because the real world is not as perfect as Thomas More describes in Utopia.
- In forming his ideas for the country of Utopia, More points out many of the problems that he sees in English society. One of the most striking examples of English social problems that More points out is the punishment of thieves. In England, thieves are punished with death.
- Love is without a doubt one of the most powerful emotions in the world. Most people in the world who have experienced this emotion know that with love, almost anything is possible. When in Love, the greater is his/her capacity for suffering, or anything else in that matter (Miguel de Unamuno, The Tragic Sense of Life).
- The War of the Worlds–are observing through telescopes the spectacle of the collision of the comet and the moon and are preparing scientific papers on what they take to be the minor damage done to the earth. Wells’s narrator then neatly upends homocentrist pretensions: “Which only shows how small the vastest human catastrophes may seem, at a distance of a few million miles.
- More’s purpose in writing utopia was quite clearly to open people’s eyes to the social and political evils of the world around them, e.g. inflation, corruption, maltreatment of the poor, wars for little or no purpose, courtly ostentation, the misuse of power by absolute monarchs, etc.
- Historically, the Renaissance era developed societal, ethical and moral behaviors for its future known as the Contemporary period. The study of the Renaissance era, during the past few weeks in class, captures the magnificent ideas of history and compares those ideas toward today s thoughts and views which stimulate the minds of the researcher and creates an imagination of personal values.
