what did robert owen think about industrialization?
- Anonymous1 decade agoFavorite Answer
Robert Owen was a social reformer and one of the founders of socialism and the cooperative movement. Owen's philosophy was based on three intellectual pillars:
1. no one was responsible for his will and his own actions, because his whole character is formed independently of himself; people are products of their environment, hence his support for education and labour reform, rendering him a pioneer in human capital investment.
2. all religions are based on the same absurd imagination, that make man a weak, imbecile animal; a furious bigot and fanatic; or a miserable hypocrite; (in dotage, he embraced spiritualism).
3. support for the putting-out system instead of the factory system.Source(s): Fair & Balanced
