Considerant, Victor, born at Salins, France, in 1805, became a disciple of Fourier, whom he succeeded in 1837 as head of the French Socialists. In 1845 he founded La Democratie Pacifique, as the organ of his party, and in 1848 was elected to the Assemblee Nationale, where he voted with the most advanced republicans. In 1849 he was charged with treason, took refuge in America, and in 1854 founded a colony in Texas, which proved a failure. Of his various publications the most important is La Destinee Sociale.
