Utopian Philosophers Versus Normal Philosophers

Between the utopian philosophers and the normal philosophers there is a fundamental difference. The utopians cannot perceive ordinary human beings. They see only the idealized man who is fit to inhabit their utopia. The normal philosophers see the world as it is and with a certain simplicity of heart they reflect upon the life of people in their society. The utopian philosopher’s vision is abstract and idealized, while the normal philosopher’s vision is historical and real.
