This chapter examines the childhood and family life of Victor Considerant in Franche-Comté, France. It provides a description of Franche-Comté and Considerant's family. It suggests that the most important influence in Considerant's early life was his father Jean-Baptiste Considerant, who was by all accounts an extremely learned man and a man of high principles. It also discusses Considerant's relocation to Paris, his education at École Polytechnique and the publication of his short story titled Un Pressentiment.
