People that only have a superficial knowledge about Spiritism are naturally
led to frame certain questions, whose in-depth study would, no
doubt, give them the solution, but they lack the time and frequently will
not dedicate themselves to regular observation. They would like to at least
know what it is all about and if it is worth to get involved with that, before
initiating the task. Thus, it seemed useful to us to present, in a limited
picture, the answers to some fundamental questions that are addressed
to us daily. To the reader it will be a first initiation and to us it will be
time saved by the avoidance of constant repetitions of the same things.
The format of dialogue seemed more convenient since it does not offer the dryness of the purely dogmatic style. We end this introduction by
a summary that will allow the understanding of all of the fundamental
principles of the science through a quick reading. Those who after that
short exposition consider the subject worthy of their attention can investigate
it further with knowledge of cause. The objections come, most of the
time, from the false ideas that we acquire a priori about something that
we don’t know. The rectification of such ideas operates in anticipation to
the objections. That is our proposed objective in writing the small book.
Persons unfamiliar to Spiritism will find in that publication the means of
acquiring an idea about the subject, in a short time and at a low budget;
those who are already initiated will find the means of resolving the main
difficulties that are proposed to them. We count on the support of every
friend of this Science, helping with the propagation of the short summary.
