Étienne Cabet Étienne Cabet (French: [kabɛ]; January 1, 1788 – November 9, 1856) was a French philosopher and utopian socialist. He was the founder of the Icarian movement. His goal was to replace capitalist production with workers' cooperatives. He became the most popular socialist advocate of his day, with a special appeal to artisans who were being undercut by factories. Cabet led groups of emigrants to found utopian communities in Texas and Illinois. However his work was undercut by his many feuds with his own followers.
