Part of the Boston Studies in the Philosophy of Science book series (BSPS, volume 151)


In this paper, we shall present the expressions and trends of the historiography of science in Modern Greece meaning the Greek world after the fall of the Byzantine Empire. There will be two approaches to this subject. One will examine the different kinds of history of science over all these years and the other will examine their relations with respect to the periods of Greek intellectual life.
