Si en Vidas paralelas Plutarco ha examinado en detalle las biografías de destacados personajes griegos y romanos, en los tratados reunidos aquí puede hacer reflexiones generales sobre ambas sociedades y culturas.
La gran erudición sobre temas históricos que permitió a Plutarco escribir tantas obras sobre l. a. materia (en especial l. a. serie de biografías sobre grandes personajes griegos y romanos de las Vidas paralelas), le permite reflexionar aquí sobre el pasado y el carácter de los pueblos y culturas por los que sentía más apego y admiración: en «Las cuestiones romanas y las cuestiones griegas», «Sobre l. a. fortuna de los romanos», «Sobre l. a. fortuna de Alejandro», «Sobre los angeles fama de los atenienses», «¿Fueron los atenienses más ilustres en guerra o en sabiduría?» traza reflexiones generales acerca de griegos y romanos, generalizaciones a partir de un conocimiento muy sólido y minucioso que ya se ha puesto de manifiesto en el detallismo de las Vidas. Plutarco ve en los periodos clásicos de atenienses y romanos un modelo imitable, pero para que así lo sean es preciso estudiarlos a fondo; en este sentido, el de Queronea presta un servicio a su tiempo, puesto que, como siempre, plantea sus trabajos de investigación histórica no como simples tareas de erudición, sino como trabajos prácticos con una función pública: contribuir a los angeles formación de los jóvenes que van a asumir responsabilidades públicas.
