Unfinished at the time of Kolnai's death, "The Utopian Mind" should be widely welcomed by students of moral and political philosophy. It provides a powerful critique of the "Utopian" mode of valuation. Kolnai locates utopian thinking in totalitarian systems of the Right and Left and as an unspoken background to much liberal thought and to many of the best known theories of moral philosophy. The book carries an introduction by Professor Pierre Manent of the Centre de Recherches Politiques Raymond Aron, Paris, and a preface by David Wiggins, Wyckham Professor of Logic at the University of Oxford.
