Moralogy is an indigenous six-decade-old Japanese approach to business ethics which has been particularly influential among middle-sized business. The core themes of moralogy are (1) the inseparability of morality and economic activities, (2) the recognition of a difference between social justice and universal justice, and (3) an emphasis on identification of principles of supreme or universal morality. Moralogy recognizes moral liberty and a principle of "omni-directional fairness"; and may be best described as a virtue-based stakeholder approach to business ethics. It differs in significant ways, however, from Rawls' Theory of Justice and Donaldson and Dunfee's Integrative Social Contracts Theory.
