Kardec "interviews" the spirits, asking more than 1000 questions about morality, the nature of the soul, the history of humanity, and more, including:
. "Is the soul reincarnated immediately after its separation from the body?"
. "Does the spirit remember his corporeal existence?"
. "Could two beings, who have already known and loved each other, meet again and recognise one another, in another corporeal existence?"
. "What is to be thought of the signification attributed to dreams?"
. "Are good and evil absolute for all men?"
. "What is the aim of God in visiting mankind with destructive calamities?"
. "Is it possible for man to enjoy perfect happiness upon the earth?"
Promising nothing less than the secret of the destiny of the human race, this extraordinary book, first published in 1856, is as curious today as it was a century and a half ago.
