From the reviews:
"Santas and his work have merited a Festschrift of this magnitude--fully 22 articles from a variety of scholars, most of whom who are established leaders in the field ... . The articles are relatively even in their level of scholarship and philosophical discernment. EHGS will be most beneficial to those scholars of ancient Greek philosophy who specialize in Socrates, or in ancient moral psychology. Scholars interested in the Republic will also find many articles pertinent to their research." (Patrick Mooney, Philosophy in Review, Vol. XXXIII (5), 2013)
