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. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Simon Prebble. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/tant/001867/bk_tant_001867_sample.mp3.
