Chapter Summary

This appendix section presents the chronological table is from Christoph August Heumann, ?Eintheilung der historiae philosophicae?: Acta philosophorum. The term ?historiography? can take up a variety of meanings. In the following, the term is understood as the history and method of a given historical discipline, in this case the history of philosophy. The history of philosophy has a history of its own, as far as it is possible to identify the emergence of the discipline in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, and to trace the development of several methods employed by historians of philosophy in these and subsequent centuries. The present work has two aims. The first is to identify the origin, nature and influence of the historiographical concept ?system of philosophy?, employed as a methodological tool in the history of philosophy. The second is to discuss the strengths and weaknesses of this historiographica.

Keywords: Christoph August Heumann; historiography; system of philosophy
