David Anhaght‘: The 'Invincible' Philosopher
Avedis K. Sanjian
The fifth/sixth century Armenian Neoplatonist David Anhaght‘ is recognized as the founder of several branches of Armenian philosophy, particularly logic. His philosophical writings have been studied by generations of Armenian scholars, and during the past several decades have been the focus of intensive scholarly attention in the former Soviet Armenia and elsewhere.
In 1980 David’s 1500th anniversary was marked by an international conference in Erevan. A year later a group of scholars participated in a symposium at UCLA and their analyses are presented in this volume.
