Abstract: How should we live together? This course will explore social and political philosophy through utopian and dystopian literature. A utopia is an imaginary state or place distinguished by its supreme levels of liberty, abundance and tranquility. A dystopia is an imaginary state or place usually characterized by insufferable oppression, deprivation and terror. As different as these societies appear, each is an ideal model of perfection as conceived by its creator(s). Through our study of these texts we will examine conflicting conceptions of social and political perfection, and explore the various moral ideals that support these conceptions.
