Summary

Thomas More in "Utopia" describes an imaginary island-kingdom inhabited by an ideal society in which some modern scholars have perceived an idealized opposite of its contemporary Europe, while others have a lazy satire on it. More derived the term from ancient Greek with a play of words between ou-topos (ie non-place) and eu-topos (happy place); Utopia is, literally, a "non-existent happy place".Thomas More in "Utopia" describes an imaginary island-kingdom inhabited by an ideal society in which some modern scholars have perceived an idealized opposite of its contemporary Europe, while others have a lazy satire on it.
