  2. Utopianism: A Very Short Introduction.Lyman Tower Sargent - 2010 - Oxford University Press.
    There are many debates about what constitutes a utopia. Are utopias benign or dangerous? Is the idea of utopianism essential to Christianity or heretical?

    Even though utopias are potentially dangerous, we nonetheless need utopian visions. Loss of hope and utopia means loss of humanity. But how can we stop utopia turning into dystopia? Utopia thought of in terms of perfection, purity and exclusivity imposes its version of a better life as the only possible one. On the other hand the utopianism of opposition does not seek perfection, or removal of opportunities for evolution. Its goal is progress and not repression of human beings. It is (...)

    Sex in Utopia: Eutopian and Dystopian Sexual Relations.Lyman Tower Sargent & Lucy Sargisson - 2014 - Utopian Studies 25 (2):299.
    You can’t have good sex unless you’ve gotten a reasonable degree of social justice.Utopias and dystopias cover almost every imaginable subject, and Utopian scholars have discussed many of them, but while gender and gender relations have been considered at length, sex and sexual relations have not.1 And we would like to know what sex and sexual relations will be like in utopias and dystopias. Of course, the simple answer for eutopias—a lot of whatever we like best—and for dystopias—none of whatever (...)

    The American Cockaigne From the Sixteenth Century to the Shmoo and Beyond.Lyman Tower Sargent - 2015 - Utopian Studies 26 (1):19-40.
    For Ernst Bloch daydreams are one of the most basic sources of utopianism,1 which I have called “social dreaming.”2 While our sleeping dreams are mostly outside our control, daydreams tend to be about something we lack, such as control over our own lives, food, sex, and so forth. And there is a version of such daydreams, mostly identified with the Middle Ages, called the Cockaigne, or cokaygne,3 that is directly concerned with food, with Herman Pleij writing that “Cockaigne is first (...)

    Ideology and Utopia.Lyman Tower Sargent - 2013 - In Michael Freeden, Lyman Tower Sargent & Marc Stears (eds.), The Oxford Handbook of Political Ideologies. Oxford University Press.
    In popular usage both ideology and utopia have negative, and somewhat similar, connotations. Utopia is thought to imply something naively idealistic and, as a result, impossible to achieve due to the constraints of the ‘real world’ or because ‘human nature’ will get in the way. Ideology is also thought to imply being out of touch with the ‘real world’ by being blinkered by a set of beliefs that distorts one’s understanding of that ‘real world’. This chapter examines the recent history (...)

    African Americans and Utopia: Visions of a Better Life.Lyman Tower Sargent - 2020 - Utopian Studies 31 (1):25-96.
    If we are dissatisfied with our situation in life, we often dream of how our life could be improved. Most basically, we want a full stomach, decent clothing and housing, and a sense of security, and millions of people in the world today do not now have these things. Throughout American history, African Americans were kept from achieving this most basic decent life, let alone the more complex needs that become possible for those who fulfill the first needs. All the (...)

    In 1888 Edward Bellamy, a moderately successful journalist and novelist, produced Looking Backward, a eutopian novel that not only transformed his life but directly or indirectly affected the lives of many millions of people in all parts of the world and inspired hundreds of imitators, commentators, and critics to respond to Looking Backward or to write utopian novels in many languages.1 In addition, movements were started to attempt to put Bellamy’s ideas into practice,2 and at least one intentional community was (...)

    Five Hundred Years of Thomas More's Utopia and Utopianism.Lyman Tower Sargent - 2016 - Utopian Studies 27 (2):184.
    Five hundred years after it was published, there is still no agreement on how to interpret Thomas More’s Utopia, and there are also fundamental disagreements about the way we think about the entire utopian genre. Therefore, some reflections on both Utopia and the genre seem appropriate. Utopia is a complex book that was initially published in Latin, with editions in German in 1524, Italian in 1548, English in 1551, Dutch in 1553, and French in 1559. Utopia has been read, interpreted, (...)

    Calvin Blanchard and The Art of Real Pleasure[REVIEW]Lyman Tower Sargent - 2013 - Utopian Studies 24 (2):312-328.
    Calvin Blanchard (1808–1868) was a prolific, albeit repetitive, author, publisher, and printer who was identified by L. L. and Jessie Bernard as an early American sociologist who helped introduce Americans to Auguste Comte. The Bernards also said that Blanchard was mentally ill.1 The Bernards’ discussion of Blanchard is the only recognition of Blanchard that predates the reprinting of one of his novels, The Art of Real Pleasure (1864), in Arthur O. Lewis’s 1971 American Utopian Literature set of forty-two volumes. The (...)

    Dreamstreets: A Journey Through Britain's Village Utopias by Jacqueline Yallop.Lyman Tower Sargent - 2016 - Utopian Studies 27 (2):393-394.
    Although the title Dreamstreets and the use of the word utopias in the subtitle strongly suggest a focus on the utopian, there are only a few references to utopia in the book, which is about the author’s responses to some of the model villages established in Britain in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The author says that there were about four hundred such villages, and she has visited many I have not visited and know little about; she is particularly (...)

    The Gardens of the British Working Class by Margaret Willes.Lyman Tower Sargent - 2016 - Utopian Studies 27 (2):390-392.
    While, as the author notes, working class was not used until 1790, the book begins in the sixteenth century. And while there are no direct references to utopias or utopianism, there are a number of themes and topics discussed in the book that are related to utopianism and the way gardens and gardening have appeared in utopias. And gardens and gardening have been important in utopias from the very beginning.1 Gardens, for example, are central to life in More’s Utopia and (...)

    Chinchilla's Communal Settlers by Veronica Dawson.Lyman Tower Sargent - 2016 - Utopian Studies 27 (2):387-389.
    This book is a study of three intentional communities established with government support in the 1890s in Queensland, Australia. All three were short-lived, and as the title suggests, although there is considerable information on the communities, the focus of the book is on the settlers rather than on the communities. In fact, and extremely unusual in studies of intentional communities, there are extensive biographical dictionaries on the members of all three communities. And these dictionaries include information on the men involved (...)

The diversity of ideology studies is represented by a mixture of the range of theories that illuminate the field, combined with an appreciation of the changing complexity of concrete ideologies and the emergence of new ones. Ideologies, however, are always with us.
