Throughout the ages, people have looked at their communities and dreamed of how they could be perfected. But such dreams, no matter how well-intentioned, can result in conditions far worse than what came before. The selections in Imperfect Ideals illustrate the best and worst of these utopian and dystopian visions, challenging readers to address the perennial questions of how society should be structured and governed, as well as what kind of community is most conducive to human fulfillment, both privately and in the civic arena. In addition to reading the book, we will be seeing half-hour videos entitled: Great Utopian and Dystopian Works of Literature. The book: Imperfect Ideal, may be ordered from the Great Books Foundation at GreatBooks.org. A minimum of 10 students is required for this course.
