This fascinating fictional account will introduce the reader to key ideas in social and political philosophy. It presents crucial skills of philosophical investigation in an accessible, rigorous and light-hearted way. The novel is funny, informative and entertaining, allowing the reader to experience often complex ideas from the 'inside' by using skills they will have acquired, unconsciously, from films, TV and novels. The reader will learn about freedom, responsibility, justice and fairness and see how these are played out in the different utopian futures of a range of socio-political regimes.This work of fiction covers the following philosophies: Market Liberal; Marxist/Communist; Communitarian/Republican; Moral Conservative; Egalitarian/Socialist; Social Democratic; Feminist; and Ecological.

About the Author:

Tony Fitzpatrick, School of Sociology and Social Policy, University of Nottingham

Review:

Voyage to Utopias is unique in that it uses well-written fiction to illustrate what the outcome might be if certain social theories were given whole worlds in which to practice, ranging from flawed paradises to sinister dystopias. Perfect for students. Ben Farmer, student

Fitzpatrick's Voyage to Utopias is for Social Policy what Gaarder's Sophie's World was for Philosophy (but it's loads more fun): an outrageous novel to introduce young people to alternative ideologies of welfare. Hartley Dean, London School of Economics & Political Science

Great material for university students, it is an exciting yet educational journey. Sini Wiren, journalism & political science student, University of Worcester

For the twelfth chapter's brief vision of environmental disaster alone the book should be on the reading list of every student of social philosophy. Citizen's Income Newsletter
