(Bachelor’s programme)
2016
This study is based on the works devoted to the theme of social reconstruction, which, because of its unrealisticness began to be perceived as social utopias. The aim of this work is the structuring of all of the accumulated scientific knowledge regarding utopia and the author's own approach to simplify navigation in the variety of utopian movements and ideas. The combination of the two approaches (historical and thematic) shows the most representative picture of the development of utopian doctrines in the world philosophy.

The study demonstrates the diversity of utopian thought and its development in world philosophy. In this research in addition to the analysis of work of the founder of the term "utopia" (More, T 1516/1967) author traced the origins of utopia as a literary genre and philosophical doctrine from antiquity to modernity.

Besides, during the study it was noticed that in the framework of this study insufficient attention is paid to the Eastern type of utopian thought. Eventually the deep ideological divide between the Western and Eastern types of utopian knowledge was eliminated and prospects of development of utopian knowledge were identified.
