Utopia by Thomas More

Discussion will be led by Prof. David Kilpatrick of Mercy College
The location of the meeting is Room 22 of Maher Hall on the Mercy College campus.
Refreshments will be served.



Utopia, written in 1516, may be relevant today as students of political science and philosophy might agree. Thomas More, humanist, churchman and scholar describes a fictional island society in which people practiced religious tolerance; everybody worked, all goods were community-owned, and violence, bloodshed, and vice were nonexistent. This was the forerunner of many later attempts at establishing "Utopias," both in theory and in practice.
