After studies in Algiers he was noticed in the Paris salons by a treatise 'Sur la chronologie d'Herodote' (1781). In 1783 he travelled trough the Near East. This resulted in a Herodotian travelbook Le voyage en Égypte et en Syrie (1787, 2 volumes). In 1789 Volney was presented a mandate as a representative of the third estate in the Estated General. Since then he combined intensive political activity with a sucesfull career as a essayist. In particular his Lockian essay 'Les ruines ou méditations sur les révolutions des empires (1791) was very popular. In 1793 he published a kind of philosophical catechismt: La loi naturelle ou principes de la morale, déduits de l'organisation de l'homme et de de l'universe. In 1795 he travelled to America. He became member of the Académie Francaise (1795) and senator (1799) (...). Moderne encyclopedie der wereldliteratuur. Bussum, z.j., 5, 179. 'Der französische Aufklärungsphilosoph Volney ist Naturalist und Materialist. Seine moralphilosophischen Ansichten übernimmt er von Helvetius. Danach besteht kein Gegensatz zwischen Selbstliebe und Forderung des Gemeinwohls. Das Ideal der Vernunftherrschaft glaubt Volney in der Französischen Revolution annährend verwirklicht. Freiheit und Gerechtigkeit setzt er gleich. Volney's Geschichtsphilosophie ist Anwendung seiner Ethik'. W. Ziegenfuss. Philosophen-Lexikon. Berlin 1950, 806-07
