THE CITY OF THE SUN AND THE FOUNDATIONS FOR SOCIAL PERFORMANCE


Martian IOVAN*
Abstract. This paper proposes a new contextual interpretation of The City of the Sun as a pattern for social performance in a systematic, well organized society. I will explore the foundations of some interesting concepts and aspects developed by Campanella in The City of the Sun, such as an economic system based on social distribution, the emphasis on technology as a strong basis for social development, and the administrative
system of justice. I will argue that Campanella’s perfect society is, in fact, a response to his attempt to find a possibility of constraining social and institutional order so that the human beings can live together in perfect
harmony.

Keywords: Tommasso Campanella, The City of the Sun, social performance, communal interest, administration of justice
