The latest version of the systematization of Armenian philosophical thought of the 5th - 6th centuries, which is now in scientific circulation and has not lost its monumental significance, is described in the work Formation of Philosophical Science in Ancient Armenia (5th - 6th centuries) by academician Sen Arevshatian. The author wrote it in Russian, presenting his deep research comments to a wider circle of scientists.
Sen Arevshatian was not only a skilled researcher of Armenian philosophical thought of the 5th - 6th centuries, but also of the entire Middle Ages, as the Armenian Middle Ages began from the Golden Age and lasted until the 17th - 18th centuries.
It is extremely important that the works of the Armenian philosophers of the 5th - 6th centuries are investigated in the context of ancient and all-Christian philosophical thought.
In the book The Formation of Philosophical Science in Ancient Armenia (5th - 6th centuries) Sen Arevshatian presents the development of Armenian philosophical thought from the adoption of Christianity as State religion in Armenia until the first half of the 6th century. The scientist provides accurate scientific systematization of the phases of patristic philosophy. The main achievement of this systematization is to make it evident that at the end of the 5th century and in the first half of the 6th century, Armenian philosophical thought was keeping pace with the philosophical thought of civilized Christian countries and was professing such advanced ideas of its time, which have not lost their relevance even now.
