The Quest for Utopia
Throughout human existence, we have dreamed of a more perfect society--a blissful utopia of plenty, justice, and happiness. In this course, we will survey utopian and dystopian literature, as well as fascinating real-world utopian experiments. Whether the goal of the community was religious or secular, sober or bizarre, their stories of hope and struggle reveal both the best and the worst of human nature. You will begin to ask yourself if a perfect human society is even possible, what your utopia would look like, and whether one person’s utopia is another person’s nightmare.
