Publisher's Summary

Sir Thomas More's Utopia has spurred debate, reflection, and critical thinking since its original publication in the 16th century. More's fictional island of Utopia provides an exploration of issues that shook him and his contemporaries and that continue to be problematic in the modern day.

The details of More's utopian society, such as the permissibility of euthanasia and comments on chastity in the priesthood combine with proposals for the coexistence of varied religions to put forth a work that incorporates the totality of More's religious, sociological, and philosophical talents. This version of Utopia is the translation by Bishop Gilbert Burnet.

    Story
    "Good re-enacment of a Classic!"

    This Classic is vividly communicated by Prebble. The work is a philosophico-political treatise and so weighted with ideas, terminologies, and interpretations of its given context. Prebble, nonetheless, makes it bearable.

    Story
    "Clearly written by a man."

    I'm no women's liberationist but the some of the ideas in this book are so ridiculous I cannot understand how it has survived the centuries and remains popular enough to be cited in popular media (like movies).
