Happy Five-Hundredth, Thomas More!

Par

Last December we celebrated the five-hundredth anniversary of the publication of Thomas More’s Utopia, which revived a literary tradition begun by Plato — the detailed description of a society that its creator views as ideal. Nicole Morgan, a leading Thomas More specialist, takes a fresh look at this now classic work and its author, a great scholar and statesman, who in it outlines his vision of the optimal form of government as he and his humanist friends of the time saw it. A vision which, in the context of the 16th century, he could serve up only in the form of this humorous narrative that gave us the term “utopia”.
