Abstract

Summary Freedom, solidarity, democracy, and independence are the four fundamentals of the mutualistic doctrine and practice developed by the early mutual assistance societies created during the early days of the French Revolution. These notions, which have subsisted under varying contexts for more than two centuries, have been implemented in many ways, yet remain essentially valid today. There are two other features to mutualism. During the “Belle Époque”, somewhat less so thereafter, mutualism defended values similar to those proposed by the Radical Party, and has always been, and still is, rather suspicious of the State.
