Abstract:

Somehow by definition Utopia as a genre escapes easy categorisation and is distinguished by its interdisciplinary and multidimensional character. Utopia combines properties of a purely literary work (with plot, characters or symbolism) but also contains prominent features of purely political or philosophical writing. It can also be an important form of social critique or polemics. Particularly crucial dimensions of every utopia are its pedagogical and educational implications; although surprisingly, those aspects of the genre are relatively rarely explored in critical literature on the subject. After all, Plato’s "Republic", the first major European utopia, is largely devoted to education and formation of elites. The current article is devoted to the exploration of various educational and pedagogical themes present in Thomas More’s "Utopia". Last year marks a special occasion, as we celebrated the five-hundredth anniversary since the publication of this one of the most interesting, most influential and most enigmatic works of English Renaissance. The following article sketches a vision of society in Utopia from the perspective of education and teaching.
