About Moral Science

In the 9 volume Treatise covering over 3,000 pages, Hiroike clarified the nature of conventional morality. He stressed that although it was defined formally and intelectually in many cases, it was essentially based upon the instinct of self-preservation, or the self-centered and egoistic tendency of human beings. Hence, Hiroike found convetional morality imparfect and ineffective in many respects.

Hiroike's intention in establishing moralogy was to bring true peace and happiness to the human world by encouraging each indivisual to practice supreme morality. He set about this goal first by clarifying its content and principles, and secondly by showing how crucial and effective the practice of supreme morality is in achieving true peace.
