Political Uses of Utopia
For anarchists, utopias are about action. As Uri Gordon argues, utopias are "umbilically connected to the idea of social revolution". 1 The kind of action utopia describes is a matter of debate. This essay examines how utopian thinking shapes anarchist thought and highlights some recent shifts in the political uses of utopia. Utopianism is not treated as an abstract concept or method, nor as a literary genre or place -because that is not how anarchists have understood the idea.
