While the general circumstances of Considerant’s political evolution prior to 1848 are well known, his debate with Joseph Rey (an old timer of democracy, who had introduced in France Robert Owen’s ideas, and was preaching a form of syncretic communism) documents his radical evolution towards republicanism. Considerant makes clear his acceptation of the notion of social and democratic Republic. The efforts of the Fourierists in the fall of 1848 in favor of unity, which largely contributed to the birth of the démoc-soc party were accordingly the logical consequence of Considerant’s stance in the summer of 1847.
