Chapter Summary

The legacy of David played a major part in the long process which, by the end of the 6th century and after the creative drive of the third period of the Hellenizing school, culminated in the establishment of Armenian philosophy, with its professionalism, its own range of secular themes, and its accurate and rich terminology. The philosophy of David the Invincible, in completing the formation of Armenian philosophical science, marked the high point of the development of this sphere of culture in the period of early feudalism. In the Armenian world during the Middle Ages David's philosophy helped in the formation of new trends in philosophical thought and served as a source of inspiration for many thinkers and scholars. David the Invincible had a great influence on Armenian philosophical thought in the period of Enlightenment. David's philosophy influenced Byzantine scholars who could easily use the Greek versions of his works.
