    Suicide by Democracy:An Obituary for America and the World 2nd Edition.Michael Starks - 2019 - Las Vegas, USA: Reality Press.
    Among the millions of pages of print and web pages and incessant chat and chatter on TV and blogs and speeches, there is a notable absence of a short clear honest, accurate, sane, intelligent summary of the catastrophe that is destroying America and the world. This is partly due to a lack of understanding and partly to the suppression of free speech by the leftist/liberal/progressive/democratic/socialist/multicultural/diverse/social democratic/communist/third world supremacist coalition. I attempt to fill that gap here. -/- An integral part of (...)

    Political Utopias: Contemporary Debates Ed. By Michael Weber, Kevin Vallier.Mark Stephen Jendrysik - 2019 - Utopian Studies 29 (3):429-433.
    The question of the true nature of justice, whether as a conventional product of human action and human limitations or as a universal ideal, is one that has inspired philosophical debate since Plato. In this volume a number of scholars wrestle with this question. They ask whether justice should be utopian, focused solely on the ideal, or whether just must be realist, taking into account the constraints of contemporary human existence. As the editors note in their introduction, it should come (...)

    Metamorphoses of Science Fiction: On the Poetics and History of a Literary Genre by Darko Suvin, And: Dystopia, Science Fiction, Post-Apocalypse: Classics—New Tendencies—Model Interpretations Ed. By Eckart Voigts, Alessandra Boller.Andrew Milner - 2019 - Utopian Studies 29 (3):421-429.
    Darko Suvin’s Metamorphoses of Science Fiction, first published by Yale University Press in 1979, has been the single most influential work in the history of academic science-fiction studies. As Veronica Hollinger observed: “Metamorphoses is the significant forerunner of all the major examinations of the genre”. Mark Bould and Sherryl Vint make more or less the same point: “Disagreeing with him [Suvin] is a considerable part of SF scholarship—he... set... the terms by which SF has subsequently been studied”. Perhaps not quite (...)

    Robert Owen's Experiment at New Lanark: From Paternalism to Socialism by Ophélie Siméon.Mark Allison - 2019 - Utopian Studies 29 (3):418-420.
    In a striking formulation, Ophélie Siméon describes her study as “an intellectual biography through a sense of place”. The subject of the intellectual biography is Robert Owen, the enlightened manufacturer turned universal reformer—and the father of British socialism. The place is the New Lanark Mills, the idyllic Clydeside factory village Owen superintended from 1800 to 1825. Owen’s spectacular entrepreneurial and humanitarian successes as a paternalistic manager served as the springboard for his subsequent career as a radical activist and socialist pioneer. (...)

    Negative Theology and Utopian Thought in Contemporary American Poetry: Determined Negations by Jason Lagapa.Scarlett Higgins - 2019 - Utopian Studies 29 (3):434-438.
    Jason Lagapa’s Negative Theology and Utopian Thought in Contemporary American Poetry tackles a question that has been a difficult one to address for critics attempting to discuss contemporary experimental poetry in the line of “ Language writing.” This is a tradition that claims to be politically engaged but which nevertheless does not tend explicitly to exhort its readers to take concrete political actions. How can we thus judge this poetry’s political efficacy when there are no clear or obvious political actions (...)

    Remembering a Socialist Future in Postdictatorship Chile: Utopian Anticipation and Anti-Utopian Critique in Jorge Baradit's Synco.Gabriel A. Saldías - 2018 - Utopian Studies 29 (3):398.
    It is not uncommon to see the utopian impulse and memory regarded as opposing concepts; while memory seeks to recover contents of the past through the act of remembering, the utopian impulse is more concerned with projecting historical content beyond our present time. This apparent opposition can wrongfully lead to the idea that memory cannot be utopian or that the utopian impulse cannot be found in remembered social contents, something easily disprovable by attending to the many utopian literary texts that (...)

    Aldous Huxley's Late Turn to Bergson and Island as Bergsonian Utopia.Mark Taylor - 2018 - Utopian Studies 29 (3):362.
    Aldous Huxley’s final novel, the “Utopian phantasy” Island,1 is frequently characterized as a combination of Eastern and Western thought. R. S. Deese describes the novel’s society as “drawing its worldview from a combination of modern science and Mahayana Buddhism,”2 while M. H. N. Schermer similarly terms the island’s culture “a mixture of eastern religious and philosophical views, and western scientific knowledge and technologies.”3 Given Huxley’s own stated goal of showing “how humanity can make the best of both Eastern and Western (...)

    Dystopia, Utopia, and “Home” in Toni Morrison's Home.Mark A. Tabone - 2018 - Utopian Studies 29 (3):291.
    At the dreamlike conclusion of Toni Morrison’s 1998 novel Paradise, two women, Piedade and Consolata, watch a ship head into port. Its crew and passengers prepare for a moment of rest, writes Morrison, “before shouldering the endless work they were created to do down here in Paradise.”1 After more than three hundred pages dedicated, as Tom Moylan observes, to confronting “the complexities of Utopia itself,”2 Morrison’s final words on utopia contain two critical ideas worth unpacking.First, Morrison posits paradise in terms (...)

    Next Door to Nirvana: Neighboring States and the Utopian Border Paradox.Aaron Santesso - 2018 - Utopian Studies 29 (3):325.
    Spare a thought for the Nephelogetes. On the face of it, these allies and neighbors of More’s Utopians are not meant to be pitied: the Utopians fought a war for them, avenging a “great injustice” wrought upon them by their enemies, the Aleopolitanes.1 A happy enough arrangement, it would seem—and yet life in such a state must surely be one of constant torment and regret: perfect government, perfect happiness, perfect lives—all on the other side of the line. And how do (...)

    Hope, Utopia, and Everyday Life: Some Recent Developments.Julia Anne Cook - 2018 - Utopian Studies 29 (3):380.
    The last fifteen years have witnessed an explosion of interest in the concept of hope in the humanities and social sciences. In their recent introduction to a special issue of History and Anthropology addressing this trend, Kleist and Jansen attribute the contemporary upsurge of interest in hope to two prevalent and often interwoven developments: a widespread sense of crisis stemming from a diverse range of natural and geopolitical events, on the one hand, and a heightened sense of lack of political (...)

    In his novel The Girl with All the Gifts, M. R. Carey presents human beings under vexation. The novel begins in medias res, twenty years after a fungal outbreak, as Homo sapiens are on the brink of evolutionary extinction. Evolution, initiated by the spread of a fungus that first controls and then destroys its human hosts, has necessitated that human beings either adapt, thereby revealing humanity’s true potential, or die.1 Adaptation is impossible for Homo sapiens; the human body in its (...)

    Beyond Analytic and Continental in Contemporary Political Thought: Pragmatic Methodological Pluralism and the Situated Turn.Clayton Chin - 2016 - European Journal of Political Theory 15 (2):205-222.
    In the division between analytic and continental thought, pragmatism has often been cast as a middle way. Fundamentally critical of each, it also shares resonances with both of these traditions. However, while this observation is common, remarkably little has been done to examine its truth in contemporary political thought. Drawing on recent trends in political theory, including ‘New Realism’, critical genealogical methods and a surge in pragmatic approaches, this article identifies an emerging situated turn in political thought. Emerging from several (...)

    Beginning from the hypothesis that Slavoj iek's recent 'theological' writing really concerns issues in political theory — historicity, modernity and freedom — 'polemical ambivalence' uses a fundamental structural ambiguity in his recent book, The Puppet and Dwarf, to interpret his larger project as split about the utopian aspect of modernity. The Puppet and the Dwarf is riven by modernity, with the text's central argument demonstrating the importance of the modern perspective but with the framing material demanding that we reverse this (...)

    In Defense of Unfair Compromises.Fabian Wendt - forthcoming - Philosophical Studies:1-21.
    It seems natural to think that compromises ought to be fair. But it is false. In this paper, I argue that it is never a moral desideratum to reach fair compromises and that we are sometimes even morally obligated to try to establish unfair compromises. The most plausible conception of the fairness of compromises is David Gauthier’s principle of minimax relative concession. According to that principle, a compromise is fair when all parties make equal concessions relative to how much they (...)

    Is Democracy an Option for the Realist?Kristoffer Ahlstrom-Vij - 2018 - Critical Review 30 (1-2):1-12.
    In Democracy for Realists, Christopher Achen and Larry Bartels argue that the depressingly well-established fact that people are woefully ignorant on politically relevant matters renders democratic ideals mere “fairy tales.” However, this iconoclasm stands in deep tension with the prescriptions they themselves end up offer-ing towards the end of the book, which coincide to a surprising extent with those that have been offered by democrats for decades. This is a problem because, if we take seriously the type of data that (...)
