and CNRS researcher Simone Debout (1919-2020) devoted part of her life to Charles Fourier
. Not only did she edit his complete works in twelve volumes (1966-1968 Anthropos editions, now reedited by Les presses du réel), but also published a critical piece on his Théorie des quatre mouvements
(1808), and uncovered a series of notebooks representing the crux of Fourier's work: Le Nouveau Monde amoureux
, that had been forgotten for over a century.
