In Utopia, Thomas More gives us a traveller's account of a newly discovered island where the inhabitants enjoy a social order based on natural reason and justice, and human fulfilment is open to all.
As the traveller, Raphael, describes the island to More, a bitter contrast is drawn between this rational society and the custom-driven practices of Europe.
So how can the philosopher try to reform his society?
In his fictional discussion, More takes up a question first raised by Plato and which is still a challenge in the contemporary world.
In the history of political thought few works have been more influential than Utopia, and few more misunderstood.
