This chapter examines the career and experiences of Victor Considerant as a Fourierist leader. It discusses the decision of Considerant and his colleagues to give up on the journal project because they resented Charles Fourier's dogmatism and found it impossible to work with him. By the end of 1833, Considerant and some of his colleagues began to create a Fourierist movement independent of Fourier himself. They downplayed Fourier's effort to present his theory as a science and profit-making scheme and presented it as a tentative venture in high philanthropy rather than a pure business speculation.
