Often referred to as Henri de Saint-Simon, the Comte (1760-1825) offered a new and contemporary organization of ideas and practices. He said it was necessary to put an end to the critical phase of feudalism, the 18th and 19th century revolutions, the wars, the intolerance and egotism of the old regime. This transformation, he said, could be achieved by industrialism. Saint-Simon established the doctrine of industrial progress. He was the first to create the doctrine of industrial progress, the first theoretician of industrial society and technocratic political reform.
