UNSPECIFIED. (2003) Mannheim's utopia today. HISTORY OF THE HUMAN SCIENCES, 16 (1). pp. 27-47. ISSN 0952-6951Full text not available from this repository.
This article argues that Mannheim's work contains three distinct accounts of utopia. Two of these - utopia in its classical meaning as opposition to the given and utopia in its association with democratic planning - are well known. The third is found in Mannheim's reflections on the problem of ecstasy. In suggesting a utopia of individualist self-defnition and 'pure relationship' it anticipates the recent writings of Beck, Bauman and Giddens.
