Abstract/Description: The purpose behind this dissertation is the creation, development, andillustration of a new strategy of inquiry in public administration. This new strategyof inquiry is a utopian/dystopian thought experiment. A utopian/dystopian thoughtexperiment should provide its user with a way to develop a new/different viewpointwith which to examine an administrative activity. A researcher begins with anoriginal viewpoint and should then develop a new/different viewpoint, autopian/dystopian viewpoint, by engaging in a utopian/dystopian thoughtexperiment. A utopian/dystopian thought experiment is developed in thisdissertation by bringing together elements from utopian literature and scientificthought experiment literature using a public administration point of view. Theresearch approach used in this dissertation is a three-phase process that involves reviewing and connecting pertinent literatures, using imagination and the process ofwriting to create a utopian/dystopian thought experiment, and illustrating andexamining a utopian/dystopian thought experiment in public administration. In thisdissertation, I seek to create a utopian/dystopian thought experiment as a newstrategy of inquiry that is developed specifically for public administration. Autopian/dystopian thought experiment should provide an additional tool to theresearcher who is seeking to expand the viewpoints through which the researchercan examine administrative activities.
