This is an exploration of St Thomas More's philosophy concerning the conflict of Reason and Power in Book One of "Utopia". Most scholarly research has been devoted to Book Two, the vision of the Utopian society itself. The philosophical conflict between Reason and Power discussed by Thomas More is also the central problem in various Utopian literary works setting forth scientific, humanistic, collectivist, "New Age", and natural Utopias. The study concludes that the evil in Man's human nature, expressed in abuses of power, places limits upon Man's ability to achieve happiness and prosperity in a Utopia.
