Blurb/Shorttext:
We examined in this book the reasons and conclusions of inversion of utopias to dystopias as political theories. We favored handling the thesis as four parts: in the first part, the concepts of utopia and dystopia will be examined; in the second part, classical utopias that I preferred to chose, Plato’s Republic, Farabi’s Virtuous City, Thomas More’s Utopia, Tommaso Campanella’s The City Of The Sun, and Francis Bacon’s New Atlantis will be presented as the main utopias of the world; in the third part, modern dystopias, Yevgeny Zamyatin’s We, Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World, and George Orwell’s Nineteen-Eightyfour will be presented as the dark way of utopias; and in the fourth part, we will try to put forward the transformation of the utopias into dystopias handling with technology, science, as the means of totalitarianism, which is the main ideology of dystopias.
