Title says it all. I am looking for commentaries published for the Ramchal's book Derech Hashem (if any exist)

    Any and all? Or recommended ones? If the latter, then we'd first need to know your criteria for a good commentary.

  • You should probably add in that qualification (that is, no English).

Three possibilities with the publishers' blurbs.

Way of God: Derech Hashem (Torah Classics Library) (English and Hebrew Edition) Hardcover – November 1, 1981 by Moshe Chaim Luzzatto (Author), Aryeh Kaplan (Translator)

Explores Divine regulation of the world. With Rabbi Yosef Begun's marginal notes. Vowelized, facing Hebrew and English texts.

Essentials; A Commentary on Derech Hashem by Rav Moshe Chaim Luzzato Hardcover – August 20, 2012 by Rebbetzin S. Feldbrand (Author)

As in her other books, Rebbetzin Feldbrand illuminates and clarifies these and other difficult concepts and brings them within our reach.

The Elucidated Derech Hashem. A Systematic Approach to the Basic Principles of Jewish Belief, by Rabbi Abba Zvi Naiman New Interwoven Translation and Commentary

Rabbi Abba Zvi Naiman expertly guides the reader with his clear and accurate translation, interwoven with the Hebrew original, and combines it with his extensive Zichron Eliyahu commentary, which provides references and explores the Ramchal’s vast writings to reveal the depth of his careful and precise language. This edition promises to be a major English classic for the Torah world.

    Having gone through the first third or so of Derekh HaShem with its commentary, I highly recommend The Elucidated Derech Hashem cited in the answer.
