Summary
Saint-Simonians were a group of young engineers and doctors who proposed original solutions to the social and banking crises of the early 19th century. They were unique in the 1820s in attracting women, including workers, into their movement, and attempting to change the world through love, including the sexual 'liberation' of women. Through an examination of the lives, ideals and activities of these men and women, Pilbeam analyses the influence of the Saint-Simonians on 19th-century French society.
