Chapter Summary

This chapter argues that when one begins to examine a less investigated area of the field of Byzantine Philosophy, research in the primary sources must still precede every interpretative act and critical approach. Here, research in the primary sources means: a). The gathering of texts and b). The study of texts in relation to their sources. The chapter necessarily considers both the external evidence and, as far as possible, the internal evidence regarding our texts. While its nature and methods remain to be justified, this chapter serves its purpose and satisfied its writer's aims if it stimulates an interest among new scholars in conducting research and writing about this highly productive area of Greek philosophy, one that has been somewhat neglected.

Keywords: byzantine philosophy; byzantine texts; Greek philosophy
