Yeah, I really don’t like ‘moral literature’. the rule of deconflation (deflation): use literature for analogies. Use natural law for morality (moral accounting). Use Truth for testimony (science), and avoid ‘moral literature’. Because it was the conflationary content of moral literature that allowed the conservatives of the 19th and 20th centuries to fail to produce a counter to cosmopolitan pseudoscience, and french moralism, and german rationalism.
