 ISSUES IN THE HISTORIOGRAPHY OF POST-BYZANTINE SCIENCE   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-02)
For Modern Greek philology, the history of science was part of the history of philosophy for one of two reasons: either the history of science was considered a branch of the "naturfilosophie", or the pure philosophic work of Greek scholars prevailed on their scientific works (Sat has, 1868; Dimaras, 1975; Papanoutsos, 1953; Voumvlinopoulos, 1966).
Another indirect approach to the history of science is the history of the Education made by Greek historians of the 19th and the 20th centuries (Gritsopoulos, 1966, 1971; Evagelidis 1936).
The fact that history of science was either part of the history of philosophy, or sociology, or history of education created an anti-history of science position in the Greek intellectual milieu.
