Show Summary Details


This chapter considers how Victor Considerant's thinking changed radically during the period from 1840 to 1848. It explains that during the last years of the July Monarchy and after years of supporting Louise Philippe and the principle of monarchy, Considerant decided finally to separate himself from the government and join the opposition. During this period, Considerant also distanced himself from Charles Fourier and argued for the necessity of constraint and repression.

Keywords: Victor Considerant; July Monarchy; Louise Philippe; principle of monarchy; opposition; Charles Fourier
