Victor Considerant and the Rise and Fall of French Romantic Socialism

University of California Press

This chapter examines “reaction” and “renewal” after the French Revolution of 1848. It suggests that the summer and fall of 1848 saw a period of fierce reaction and discusses the political implications of the election of Louis-Napoleon Bonaparte as president of the Second Republic in December 1848. It highlights the emergence of an organized left called the democ-soc movement, to which Victor Considerant formally joined after the 1989 elections. It also explains how Considerant had become the most outspoken and influential leaders of the left by May 1849.

Keywords:   French Revolution of 1848, Louis-Napoleon Bonaparte, Second Republic, democ-soc movement, Victor Considerant
