The author starts from the casual reading of a small book of Language destined to boys and girls of the basic school cycle. It is any work, with the only value of being representative of those who deny that language does not refer to anything objective: it seems that we are referring to something very important and, in reality, we are only referring to our own thoughts. Lewis sets out to dismantle this idea, and specifically moral relativism, by showing the permanence and immutability of human nature and fundamental ethical principles.
