|Utopia: the imaginary design of a non-existent social state in literature or political discussion. While the utopia sketches a positive alternative to the present, the dystopia depicts a negative horror vision. Characteristic of utopias is the emphasis on their almost impossible realizability. See also politics, society, history._____________Annotation: The above characterizations of concepts are neither definitions nor exhausting presentations of problems related to them.

Utopia/Classic: rather a dream of origin.
Utopia/ 19th Century: decay of time. The time will be empty.
Time/Foucault: 19th century: the finitude with its truth is in time, and immediately the time is finite. The great dreaming of an endpoint of history is the utopia of causal thinking. This has remained binding for a long time, and Nietzsche has once again revived it._____________Explanation of symbols: Roman numerals indicate the source, arabic numerals indicate the page number.
