Abstract

The February Revolution articulated social demands and inaugurated a new era for those disinherited. According to Jospeh Rey the proletarian class had the capacity to seize the political "thought power" which at that time was inseparable from the social question. A great number of those who had participated in the Revolution of 1848 were questioning the Republic’s nature and Considerant was one of them. Embracing both a critical view of the usurpation of property-ownership and the will to reorganise the "commune" in an associative form, Fourier’s disciple constantly draws the attention of his contemporaries to the necessary completion, no longer in words but in action, of the revolution. In this sens the Fourierist utopia of 1848, far from being a non-place, develops in close relation with the social demands of the moment.
