dc.description.abstractThis study will attempt to explicate and understand Saint Thomas More's Utopia and Sir Francis Bacon's "New Atlantis". Although the purpose of this paper is to examine the actual text of the utopias, biographical information about More and Bacon proved to be the major incentive for their selection. One intention of this study is to search for commonalities between the two works. These two utopists have different personal, intellectual and philosophical backgrounds and, therefore, one could assume, quite different visions of the ideal society. Sir Thomas More was a devout and pious Catholic who eventually was revered as a saint. Sir Francis Bacon is known to the student of liberal arts as the father of modern scientific method. Any similarities between their utopias will be noteworthy; any ideals they share warrant recognition.en_US
