"The [commentaries] are not line-by-line explanations of the text, but essays which explain the dialogues, closely following the development of arguments and comparing similar ideas found elsewhere in the Platonic corpus. They are insightful and thought-provoking...The editorial purpose is clearly to present a modern translation for readers with no Greek and a dependable translation for scholars unwilling or unable to deal always with the original text. Footnotes explain significant text variants and provide helpful historical information. An especially good introduction by the editor deals with the authenticity of the opuscula. Roots is a valuable document for both serious and casual students of Platonic philosophy. ―Religious Studies Review"
