Thomas More, discípulo de Platão?

Research output: Other contribution



The question that drives both Plato’s and More’s procurement for the logical form of the city is not «possession» or «property» but «commonwealth», «common-good». The economic value of things stands only on their commonwealth goodness, that is to say, on the real good than can be obtained from them for the whole of the cities’ people, thus creating a community. Only community deserves the designation of «city». Community is no «utopia». Historical cities are the real «utopias» for they are «no-places» of and for common-good, for community.
