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.

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.
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).
