Victor Considerant and the Rise and Fall of French Romantic Socialism

University of California Press

This concluding chapter considers the historical and political significance of Victor Considerant. It discusses the key achievements and failures of Considerant. It highlights Considerant's role in giving Charles Fourier an influence in the 1840s that he would not otherwise have had and in the creation of what came to be known as socialism. His two major failures can be related to the failed insurrection of June 13, 1849, and to the establishment of the socialist colony in Texas. The first brought an end to his public career and the second terminated his role as leader of the Fourierist movement.

Keywords:   Victor Considerant, Charles Fourier, socialism, failed insurrection, socialist colony, Texas, Fourierist movement
