Annotation

Eutopia. A dream of a reformed society is described; the country is called Philotopia. Many of the reforms of the time, like the eight hour work day, greatly improved hygiene, significant sanitary reform, a limit on wealth, and the elimination of monopolies, have been adopted. The basis of the changed society is education. Gender-roles and the class system have changed little, but the lower classes are better educated and better paid.
