Suard was on intimate terms with the philosophes and regularly attended the salon of Baron d'Holbach, although he seems to have eschewed their more radical ideas. Suard was a close acquaintance with the Marquis de Condorcet, having stayed in residence with him back in 1772. In 1774 he was made a member of the Académie française, and later a state censor. For all his caution, Suard would later be harassed by both the Revolutionary and the Napoleonic regimes. His Mélanges de littérature were published in 1803–1805.
