Francis Bacon’s The New Atlantis , published in 1627, and Campanella’s The City of the Sun , which appeared four years earlier, are two of the many utopian schemes that proliferated in the 17th century. Bacon’s is more of sketch, outlining the role the state should play in promoting science, while ignoring the ways such could be achieve, while the Calabrian monk Campanella pays more attention to the moral and philosophical basis upon which the social order should be premised. A brief introduction is included, taken (in abridged form) from the 1901 Tudor Publishing Co. text that contained these utopias, as well as Rousseau’s Social Contract and More’s Utopia Annotation (c) Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
