An imaginary perfect society especially in its social, political and moral aspects.
The term “utopia” was coined from the Greek by Sir Thomas More when describing a fictional island society in the Atlantic Ocean.
“Oυτοπια” [outopia] is a combination of the Greek words “ου” [ou] and “τόπος” [topos] that means “no-place” and specifically denotes a non-existent society.
Today the word has a broader connotation usually refering to a non-existent society that is better and preferable to an actual, contemporary one.
Is a written or spoken conversational exchange between two or more people, and a literary and theatrical form that depicts such an exchange.
As a narrative, philosophical or didactic device, it is chiefly associated in the West with the Socratic dialogue as developed by Plato.
The term dialogue stems from the Greek “διάλογος” [dialogos] meaning conversation.
