UTOPIA (Libellus vere aureus, nec minus salutaris quam festivus, de optimo rei publicae statu deque nova insula Utopia) is a work of fiction and political philosophy by Thomas More (1478-1535) published in 1516 in Latin. The book is a frame narrative primarily depicting a fictional island society and its religious, social and political customs. The work begins with written correspondence between Thomas More and several people he had met on the continent: Peter Gilles, town clerk of Antwerp, and Hieronymus van Busleyden, counselor to Charles V. More chose these letters, which are communications between actual people, to further the plausibility of his fictional land. In the same spirit, these letters also include a specimen of the Utopian alphabet and its poetry. The letters also explain the lack of widespread travel to Utopia; during the first mention of the land, someone had coughed during announcement of the exact longitude and latitude. The first book tells of the traveller Raphael Hythlodaeus, to whom More is introduced in Antwerp, and it also explores the subject of how best to counsel a prince, a popular topic at the time. In the second part, Utopia is placed in the New World and More links Raphael's travels in with Amerigo Vespucci's real life voyages of discovery. He suggests that Raphael is one of the 24 men Vespucci, in his Four Voyages of 1507, says he left for six months at Cabo Frio, Brazil. Raphael then travels further and finds the island of Utopia, where he spends five years observing the customs of the natives. Most scholars see it as some kind of comment or criticism of contemporary European society, for the evils of More's day are laid out in Book I and in many ways apparently solved in Book II. Indeed, UTOPIA has many of the characteristics of satire, and there are many jokes and satirical asides such as how honest people are in Europe, but these are usually contrasted with the simple, uncomplicated society of the Utopians.

This book is open access under a CC BY license. This book offers a unique and insightful analysis of Western and Middle Eastern concepts of dignity and illustrates them with examples of everyday life. Dignity in the 21st Century - Middle East and West is unique and insightful for a range of reasons. First, the book is co-authored by scholars from two different cultures (Middle East and West). As a result, the interpretations of dignity covered are broader than those in most Western publications. Second, the ambition of the book is to use examples from everyday life and fiction to debate a range of dignity interpretations supplemented by philosophical and theological theories. Thus, the book is designed to be accessible to a general readership, which is further facilitated because it is published with full open access. Third, the book does not defend one superior theory of dignity, but instead presents six Western approaches and one based on the Koran and then asks whether a common essence can be detected. The answer to the question whether a common essence can be detected between the Koranic interpretation of dignity and the main Western theories (virtue, Kant) is YES. The essence can be seen in dignity as a sense of self-worth, which persons have a duty to develop and respect in themselves and a duty to protect in others. The book ends with two recommendations. First, given the 7 concepts of dignity introduced in the book, meaningful dialogue can only be achieved if conversation partners clarify which variation they are using. Second, future collaborations between philosophers and psychologists might be helpful in moving theoretical knowledge on dignity as a sense of self-worth into practical action. The “scourges” of a sense of self-worth and dignity are identified by psychologists as violence, humiliation, disregard and embarrassment. To know more about how these can be avoided from psychologists, is helpful when protecting a sense of self-worth in others.

"Der Prinz auf dem Fahrrad" ... ein modernes, romantisches Märchen, das Herz und Lachmuskeln strapaziert! Geschieden, zwei halbwüchsige Kinder – oft genug sind die Tage für Jutta alles andere als Sonnenschein. Ablenkung und Freude bringen da häufig nur die allwöchentlichen Treffen mit ihren Freundinnen. Was dann wie ein Flirt beginnt, entwickelt sich sehr schnell zu einer Beziehung, die an keinem Tag langweilig wird, ganz im Gegenteil. Ob der Prinz sein Fahrrad in Zukunft vor Juttas Tür parkt, bleibt bis zum Schluss offen ... Aus dem Buch: ... Freitagabend: Treffen der drei Lebensmüden. Als solche bezeichnen wir uns selbst schon seit unserer eigenen Pubertät. An einem verregneten Sonntagnachmittag hatten wir damals, alle gemeinsam, einen Film gesehen, in dem sich ein junges Mädchen am Ende das Leben nimmt. Von dieser glänzenden Idee nachhaltig inspiriert, hatten wir ein paar Tage selbst über den kollektiven Freitod nachgedacht. Nachdem sich Vanessa allerdings wieder mit ihrem Tim versöhnt hatte und Martina stolz die erste Vier in Mathe nachhause bringen konnte, verwarfen wir diese trüben Gedanken auch schnell wieder. Geblieben ist bis heute nur der ausgefallene Name, über den wir, gerade in schwierigen Zeiten, immer wieder herzhaft lachen müssen. ...
