This chapter examines the influence of French philosopher and utopian social thinker Charles Fourier on Victor Considerant. It explains that Considerant first made his mark in French intellectual life as a disciple of Fourier and a popularizer of Fourier's idea. It explores Considerant's engagement with Fourier's thought, his assimilation and reformulation of Fourier's ideas, and his attempts to stake out positions of his own. It also discusses his collaboration with Fourier and his editing of the journals La Phalanstère and La Phalange.

Keywords:   Victor Considerant, Charles Fourier, utopian social thinker, French philosopher, La Phalanstère, La Phalange
