The theosophical utopia. Socialists and the birth of the Theosophical Society in France
When the Theosophical Society, founded in 1875 in New-York, was established in France, it relied as shown by the historians of this occultist movement, on several networks including spiritualism. It also attracted the interest of some neo-fourierists and socialists. We shall examine this connection and try to place it in the history of French socialist movement, around La Revue socialiste which in 1885 opened its pages to this current under the influence of one of its contributors, Louis Dramard.
