Considerant was born in Salins-les-Bains, Jura and studied art and music at the École Polytechnique (1826 diploma). Subsequently working as a musician , he collaborated with Fourier on newspapers. He edited the journals La Phalanstère and La Phalange.



Considérant wrote much in advocacy of his principles, of which the most important is La Destinée Sociale. He is also the writer of a Democracy Manifesto, which was very similar to the Communist Manifesto released five years later by Marx and Engels. Considerant defined the notion of a "right to (have) work", which would be one of the main ideas of French socialists in the 1848 Revolutions.

The failure of an insurrection against Louis Napoléon obliged Considerant to go into exile in Belgium in June 1849. On an invitation by Albert Brisbane and helped by Jean-Baptiste Godin, between 1855-57 he founded the colony La Réunion in Texas on Fourier's principles.



He was a member of the First International, founded in 1864, and took part in the 1871 Paris Commune.



He died in Paris in 1893.
