Abstract: This book contains a selected number of papers presented at the Sixth International Communal Studies Association (ICSA) Conference that was held in Amsterdam from 7 to 9 July 1998, under the title of 'Utopian Communities and Sustainability. Should members of communities strive for homogeneous, consistent values or can they accept heterogeneous, pluralistic ones? Do we need a shared utopia in order to establish intentional communities, or is the desire to create something different here and now sufficient? Such questions may be regarded in the context of a struggle between the changing, more modernist values of the sixties and those of the more postmodernist nineties. This book will stimulate further discussion about utopian thinking and utopian practices in these postmodern times.
