Victor Considerant and the Rise and Fall of French Romantic Socialism

This chapter focuses on Victor Considerant's return to the Latin Quarter in Paris, France, where he had lived about a decade earlier. During this time Considerant lost the habit of writing and public speaking and his basic assumptions and intellectual thought were already out of step with the left. Despite this, he was often invited to write articles, run for public office, and give public lectures during the 1870s. Considerant died on December 27, 1893, and one of the most memorable speeches at his funeral was that of Hippolyte Destrem who movingly evoked Considerant's role in the creation of the École sociétaire.
