A perfect future society (though sometimes not so perfect when examined closely!) The most famous example is the book Utopia by Sir Thomas More (1516). For more, see the Faber Book of Utopias (1999) edited by John Carey. There is also eutopia - a place that's not perfect, but good enough, or better than the present.
A social environment in which one is free to work for change. And those involved would be seeking to improve circumstances for human living. Based on the idea that any conflict between what is best for the individual and what is best for society exists because of erroneous beliefs. In such circumstances relevant beliefs must be studied until it is determined what is the actual source of the conflict so it can be corrected.

Utopia (from Greek: Î¿á½ no, and Ï„ÏŒÏ€Î¿Ï‚, place, i.e. "no place" or "place that does not exist") in its most common and positive meaning, refers to an imaginary, ideal civilization, which may range from a city to a world, regarded to be attainable in the future by some. Human efforts to create a better, or perhaps perfect society are called utopianism. Ideas which could be/are considered able to radically better the world are often called utopian ideas.
