    About Thomas More's Utopia
    (see video down below)

           On the occasion of the 500th anniversary of More's Utopia, our friend, Gérard Crozat, English teacher in Tarbes, organized two meetings about Utopia, with the philosophy teachers and their students.   

         The first one took place in Lourdes, at Lycée Peyramale with Marie Charignon,

         and the other was at the Institution Jeanne d'Arc in Tarbes, with Antoine Guiraud.

         The students of "Terminale L" are studying More's work for their 2016 Baccalauréat oral exam. Indeed Utopia influenced 19th century thinkers, notably Marx and Engels and can be read as a philosophical fiction.

         After presenting the circumstances of the work composition and its literary interest, Marie-Claire Phélippeau solicited the students on a few philosophical questions.

         Hubert Baudet, who was in the audience, shot the film which you can discover here. We regret that the film shot in Lourdes was underexposed due to unsufficient light in the amphitheatre.
