Abstracts
The article is an attempt to put novels of the alternate history genre in the wide frame of utopian thought. The key to the interpretation of alternate histories is the identification of strategies revealing affinity with science fiction and utopia: ontological and epistemological concepts, structural similarities, political and historiosophical conceptions. The psychology of fabricating utopia, focused on collective desires is similar to psychology of creating alternate histories, which reveals mechanisms of collective memory. On the example of few works it is shown how an utopian impulse harmonizes with other forms of social imagination (like: national myths, historical myths, ideology, collective memory).
