This research explores the study of Martin Amis’s Einstein’s Monsters to exhibit the philosophical concept of dystopia or anti-utopia. With the abundant evidence from stories and an essay which are collected in Einstein’s Monsters, the researcher comes to find out that utopia cannot be maintained by Europeans due to several reasons, for instance, the proliferation of nuclear nukes, escalation of science and technology and many more. In doing so, the researcher has brought the concept of Krishan Kumar and M. Keith Booker. The theoretical concept of ‘anti-utopia’ is proposed by Krishan Kumar’s Utopia and Anti-Utopia in Modern Times. Simultaneously, the concept of 'cacotopia’ is proposed by M. Keith Booker. This research paper focuses on the five stories namely "Bujak and the Strong Force,” “Insight at Flame Lake,” “The Time Disease,” “The Little Puppy That Could” and “The Immortals" where these stories portray the post-nuclear apocalyptic vision which demonstrates the philosophical concept of dystopia.
