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.
