A study tracing the birth and development of a modern ideological goal: the "sane" society. The author posits that utopian visions of the "perfect society" are ideological in nature, reflecting Western capitalism's exaltation of scientism and instrumental reason. The text also deals with Mannheim and Marx on sociology of knowledge, Bacon's influence on scientific and sociological theoretical frameworks, and particular utopian models such as Bellamy's "Looking Backwards."
