18 Warren, like Garrison, stands out for his advocacy of women’s equality, and he treats the individuality of women in precisely the same way he treats that of men. 19 Shortly after the New Harmony period, both Warren and Wright were exposed to the work of a remarkable philosopher, Alexander Bryan Johnson, who emigrated from England as a teenager and set up shop in Utica, New York. ) Johnson was a successful banker and husband of a granddaughter of John Adams who wrote numerous works in philosophy, political commentary, and fiction, none of which seems to have made much of an impression on anyone at the time, or indeed since.
On another, he’s a pure second-revival millenarian, over the moon for the ecstasy at the imminent end of history. In this, Warren was in keeping with the mood of both secular and religious society, of scholars and fanatics, geniuses and dolts, ascetics and libertines: it hovers over the era like a fog or a sun, depending on your view.

The Shakers anticipated the millennium, and John Humphrey Noyes said that it had already occurred.
33 Warren used his bricks to build a twostory ‘‘mechanical College’’ to inculcate skills both practical and philosophical.
