Contemporary Utopian Struggles: Communities between modernism and postmodernism (Paperback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


This collection gives an overview of contemporary utopian thinking and practices, where the members try to give their lives a different meaning notwithstanding the pluralism, restlessness and constant changes in society around them. The contributors to this volume, both utopian theorists and members from utopian communities, come from all over the world. The main theme of this collection centres around the following questions: should members of communities strive for homogeneous, consistent values or can they accept heterogeneous, pluralistic ones? Do we need a shared utopia in order to establish intentional communities or is the desire to create 'something different' here and now sufficient? Such questions may be regarded in the context of a struggle between the changing, more modernist values of the sixties and those of the more postmodernist nineties. This book will stimulate further discussion about utopian thinking and utopian practices in these postmodern times.
