Without doubt, Sir Thomas More is the first English humanist, who tries to create a society based solely on human reason. Originally,Utopia was written in Latin, because More was certain that the universal language of the scholarly class would always be Latin. More believed that by having his intellectual works in Latin, he would be assured a place in future scholarly discussions. Of course, while More was a brilliant thinker, he was no prophet. However, More as a political philosopher is worthy of notice. This work offers interesting insight about the nature of war and armies. Also, Utopia's ethical system is hedonism with a socialistic economy. Utopia offers many ideas to think about, but the primary lesson to be learned is that human reason is not a reliable guide for living the good life. Regardless of the schemes of successful living by well-intentioned men and women, if the plan excludes God as the sovereign of the home, the church, the community, and the civil government, then failure will not only likely be the result, but it will certainly occur as the judgment of the Lord God.
