Representations of ideal societies have played an important part in discussions of justice since Plato's Republic, this course will focus on some of the classical utopian (and dystopian) texts, as well as on representative contemporary literary efforts in the utopian tradition. We will also examine some of the philosophical, literary, and historiographical analyses of utopian thought and of the social phenomena associated with it.
