THE Hong Kong priest and theologian Ambrose Mong employs the concept of “intercultural imaginary” in his book A Better World Is Possible: An exploration of Western and Eastern utopian visions (James Clarke & Co, £25 (£22.50); 978-0-227-17692-4). Among the writings that he explores are those of Thomas More, Teilhard de Chardin, Confucius, Mo Tzu, and Kang Youwei. In the West, utopia is “no place”, but in the East it is conceived of as “a better place”, and the author considers alternatives to the dominance of capitalism.
