  1. I think this definition is helpful when applying the meaning of the word to context. In the reading from Knott, she talks about Eliade’s “dichotomy between the locative version of the world and the utopian version of the world.” Knott also acknowledges Eliade mentioning the “utopian map that reverses the locative.” [Knott]

  2. I think this word is vastly interesting in terms of religion. Often in religion we here this idea of heaven being mentioned. I feel that heaven in a way is this religious version of a utopian. However, is that to say that there is no physical version of a utopian in religion?
