Notes Towards a Conclusion

  • Julia Ramírez Blanco
Part of the Palgrave Studies in Utopianism book series (PASU)


In her conclusions, Ramírez Blanco aims to create a brief categorization of what she calls ‘utopias of revolt’. Dividing the chapter into three parts, she discusses the aesthetic particularities, the utopian meaning, and the communitarian aspects of these particular utopias, which are located between construction and destruction, between building a better world and demolishing the previous system.
