When the age for reflective thought comes, the pupil who has been thus trained in "ordinate affections" or 'just sentiments' will easily find the first principle in Ethics ; but to the corrupt man they will never be visible at all and he can make no progress in that science. Yet the modern educational system around him, it seems, was bent on producing 'men without chests' and calling them intellectuals. The narrator boards a bus on a drizzly English afternoon and embarks on an incredible voyage through Heaven and Hell. He meets a host of supernatural beings far removed from his expectations, and comes to some significant realizations about the nature of good and evil.
