This chapter examines three early ‘utopian socialists,’ namely Claude-Henri de Saint-Simon, François Marie Charles Fourier and Robert Owen. Each attempted to justify their planned society on the basis of some version of science. But their schemes were inflexible and they all abandoned some Enlightenment principles concerning democracy and universal human rights.

Keywords:   utopian socialism, Claude-Henri de Saint-Simon, Charles Fourier, Robert Owen, science, The Enlightenment
