- Same as phalansterian.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
Fezandié as an active and sympathetic ex-Fourierist (I think there were only ex-Fourierists by that time,) who was embarking, not far from us, on an experiment if not absolutely phalansteric at least inspired, or at any rate enriched, by a bold idealism.
I like to think of the Institution as all but phalansteric -- it so corrects any fear that such places might be dreary.
