Volney, age de vingt-cinq ans, decida d'utiliser sa part d'heritage -six mille livres- a completer sa propre education et cela en entreprenant un voyage. Il ne voulait ni de la France ni des pays avoisinants car A" trop connus ou trop faciles a connaitre A". L'Amerique naissante et les A" Sauvages A" le tentaient mais d'autres idees le deciderent pour l'Asie. A" La Syrie surtout et l'Egypte, sous le double rapport de ce qu'elles furent jadis et de ce qu'elles sont aujourd'hui (lui) parurent un champ propre aux observations politiques et morales dont (il) voulait s'occuper A". Il pensait que la plupart des opinions qui gouvernaient les hommes et les idees religieuses a l'influence si puissante sur la morale publique et particuliere, sur les lois et l'etat social etaient nees en ces contrees.
