As one who has often puzzled over what the Cappadocians have to say about names, I found this account persuasive and illuminating. Granted that it was novel in its time, and even that it has considerable merit, the fact remains that Basil provides no arguments for it strike one and that it had no influence on the history of philosophy strike two. So why should a philosopher pay it any attention? In fact there are good reasons, but they will not be found by treating what Basil says about names in isolation from the rest of his work. His treatment of this topic is merely one element in a much broader account of the relation between thought, language, and reality that runs throughout the works of the Cappadocian Fathers Basil, Gregory Nazianzen, and Gregory of Nyssa.
This account is worth attention both in its own right and because it was integral to the formation of Byzantine thought. It is part of what is missing from the Tatakis volume, as explained above. Granted that Kalligas should not be expected to explicate the entire framework of Cappadocian thought in a single essay, he ought in some way to relate his own analysis to it. The essay by Frede on John of Damascus seems at first to be immune to such objections. Yet one would never guess from this essay that the portions of De Fide Orthodoxa dealing with the will are no more than a summary of what Maximus had worked out, in much greater detail and with considerably more polemical vigor, during the monothelite debate.
That brings me to my fundamental dissatisfaction with both of the works under review. Both seem to assume although, as I said, Tatakis is not wholly consistent that Byzantine thought must be sanitized of its contamination by theology before it can be of any interest to a modern philosophical audience. I think that this approach gives the modern philosophical audience too little credit. Is not the question of God an integral part of philosophy? And particularly when one is studying the history of philosophy, is it really possible to enter into the thought-world of another culture apart from its beliefs about God?
I would have thought that part of the interest of Byzantine civilization is precisely its holistic approach to philosophy, one in which philosophy, theology, and their artistic and cultural expression are deeply intertwined. Seen in this light, the books under review illustrate what happens when one imposes a modern understanding of philosophy as an autonomous discipline upon a culture that will not support it.
One ends either with superficiality or with a fragmented and piecemeal account that fails to exhibit the interconnections unifying its subject. Without such interconnections it is often not clear why the bits and pieces have any importance. I have myself attempted elsewhere a discussion of Byzantine philosophy that is holistic and focuses on its long-term patterns of development.

I am usually an adherent of the method—but here it seems to yield distinctly unsatisfying results. Still, it retains its Platonic flavor—the upshot being that good rulers must imitate divine attributes of goodness, wisdom and justice. This is no accident, Frede argues—for John wanted to emphasize aspects of his understanding of the will, of its relation to reason, choice, and appetite, and of its role in locating humanity and other created intelligences in the divine order of things that would have been quite foreign indeed unintelligible to Aristotle.
His article is a judicious mixture of fine scholarship, acute history of ideas, and philosophy, the upshot of which is that it is reasonable to see John as a pivotal figure in the development of what is to become the Thomist conception of the will as a separate faculty or perhaps faculties , independent of both reason and desire, although obviously related to them.
Although its authorship is unknown, it can, unusually, be very precisely dated: a reference in the chapter on astronomy shows that it was composed in the autumn of Aristotle certainly mentions such propositions as forming a separate class in de Intepretatione but made no effort to integrate them into his syllogistic. Our author surveys a hotch-potch of later developments including hypothetical syllogistic, and—perhaps, the text is very unclear—Galenic relational syllogisms , and concludes that, when all allowance has been made for tense, modality, category, and types of negation, there are 2,, valid argument schemes.
All that Metochites does in the early 14th century is to get hold of a few scraps of sceptical argument preserved in the tradition, and confect an argument for the imperfection of human knowledge except as regards God and mathematics. Thus he is in some sense the forerunner of the fideistic scepticism of the Reformation and beyond. But like almost all of the subjects of this book, his main concern is theological controversialism, to which philosophy is at best a very poor, secondary cousin.
