Fourier and the Avant-Gardes
1992 / n° 3 |
A link exists between Fourier and his political and aesthetic avant-gardes. His presence can be felt in the works of Marx, the Surrealists, the Lettrists, or the Situationists. But that link, instead of deriving from exchanges with/or a study of his works, is rather an allusive one. Reference is indeed made 10 to him, but without reading him. Besides Fourier evades any attempt to be annexed. The reason lies precisely in this failure to understand Fourier’s work. Such failure is rooted in his being a poet which, from Marx to to the Situationists, has made him immune to any criticism. Relegated in his poetical sphere, Fourier is Hegel’s antithesis. He functions as an inverted myth, that is to say not as a premiss, but as an apriorism.
