The article offers an analysis of the social and existential experience represented in "Woman on the Edge of Time" by Marge Piercy. In contrast with classical utopias, this novel emphasizes a figure of a caring person who understands others and resists the mechanisms of total control over nature and human emotions. The development of the subject is revealed as a risky task of travelling beyond the ready-made identities and generally recognized concepts (first of all, binary opposites "normal" / "pathological") in search of authentic social relations.
