The goal of this paper is to re-examine that two-centuries-old socialist idea that has so far not had much luck in being achieved. To that end, the evolution and characteristics of various socialist doctrines are analyzed, an attempt is made to define the essence of an authentic socialist vision, after which the failed application of socialist projects in several of the most important countries and the reasons behind those failures are examined, ending with an inquiry into the prospects for achieving that intended more humane, just, and functional society in a contemporary, postindustrial, information-based, globalized world in which the dominant factor is still financial and corporate capital.
