Voyage to Utopias: A fictional guide through social philosophy

by Tony Fitzpatrick

"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

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.
