L’utopie en héritage. La Société du Familistère de Guise, de la mort de Jean-Baptiste Godin à la dissolution de l’association (1888-1968)

Abstract : When he dies in 1888, Jean-Baptiste Godin leaves his workers a multi-sided legacy : a prosperous industry whose share capital and profits belong to all the employees, several buildings allowing the workers to live as a community, a complete social and educational system. His successors' charge is therefore to take on this whole inheritance and to preserve it, despite the economical upheavals and the social changes. However, the Guise "Familistère" Society finds it hard to maintain its balance under the simultaneous influence of tradition, industrial competition and social progress. Though Godin's name and memory remain essential pieces of the association identity, they are not enough to protect endlessly its unity. Faced with strong economical difficulties, the workers decide to dissolve their association in May 1968, during the social movement
