A-Z: General definitions: Utopia


The word Utopia derives from the title of Sir Thomas More’s 1516 book about a fictional ideal society on an island in the Atlantic. It is used to describe a world where everyone and everything works together in perfect harmony, an earthly paradise.  Utopia’s opposite is dystopia.
