ABSTRACT
The aim of this article is to analyze negative consequences (social, political, psychological and so forth) of utopian projects, which crippled society and people by negation of reality and at the same time oblige them to accept these plans. In order to do this we analyze characteristics of two constructions which are thoroughly depicted by Jules Verne: an Arms Fabric (Stahlstadt) and a city which was mathematically built (France Ville). Furthermore there are reflections about positivism - i.e. the ground of these projects.
