Preview

In this chapter the life and writings of Pelletan are examined, with particular emphasis on his articulation of republican doctrine during the 1850s and 1860s. The chapter challenges the prevailing account of Pelletan as a dreamy idealist and utopian thinker and shows his effective contributions to the transformation of republican thinking; it also draws attention to his continuing commitment to Saint‐Simonism.
