In Euthyphro, Socrates is on his way to the court, where he must defend himself against serious charges brought by religious and political authorities. On the way he meets Euthyphro, an expert on religious matters who has come to prosecute his own father. Socrates questions Euthyphro's claim that religion serves as the basis for ethics. Euthyphro is not able to provide satisfactory answers to Socrates' questions, but their dialogue leaves us with the challenge of making a reasonable connection between ethics and religion.

"Euthyphro is one of the better dialogues"
This troupe does a great job of bringing the characters to life, and making the arguments digestible. The translation is thoroughly modern, but does a masterful job of capturing the meaning of the concepts at work, and the attitudes of the characters.
