Abstract

REVIEWS The Cambridge History of Later Greek and Early Medieval Philosophy. Edited by A. H. Armstrong, Cambridge, University Press, 1967. Pp. XIV, 711. Pr. 95 s. The philosophy of the period covered by the present volume, i.e., approximately the first millennium of our era, is of an extreme complexity. This fact originates mainly from two circumstances, firstly the difliculty of the most important and most influential system of the period, that of Plotinus, and secondly the intense confrontation between Christianity and philosophy which took place in that time. Through this encounter philosophy automatically received a task of its own within the elaboration of the doctrine of the Christian faith. This sets an investigator of the history of philosophy the difficult task to disentangle the purely philo- sophical data from the Christian context. The same can be said with regard to the writings of Jewish and Moslem thinkers. Because of the lenght of the period and the variety and complexity of the subject-matter, it was impossible for any one man to deal with the whole; for this evident reason, several authors were asked to contrib- ute.
