Summary/Abstract: The 500th anniversary of Thomas More’s Utopia in 2016 has directed attention toward the importance of utopianism. Utopian Horizons investigates the possibilities of cooperation between the humanities and the social sciences in the analysis of 20th century and contemporary utopian phenomena. The chapters deal with the major problems of interpreting utopias, the relationship between utopia and ideology, and the problematic issue as to whether utopia necessarily leads to dystopia. Covering such fields as literary studies, political science and the history of ideas, the volume demonstrates that a cooperative approach results in a fuller understanding of the role of fictionality in the social sciences. Besides reflecting the interdisciplinary nature of contemporary utopian investigations, Utopian Horizons effectively represents the constructive attitudes of utopian thought, a feature that not only defines late 20th- and 21st-century utopianism, but is one of the primary reasons behind the rising importance of the topic.
