About the Moral Science Project

The Moral Science Project is an organization founded on Formal Theory’s discovery of the scientific structure and the conflict resolving function of the unconscious as identified by studying the creative process.

The organization’s mission is providing information and conducting research establishing knowledge on psychology becoming the Moral Science. Along this mission we deliver a concise program of emotional education by bringing together The Museum of the Creative Process, the Conflict Analyis Battery (CAB), and the Moral Monopoly game. We deliver this knowledge online through the assessment and in person through workshops hosted at the Wilburton Inn the location of the Museum of the Creative Process.

The exhibits of the museum illustrate the theoretical position of the unconscious as a conflict resolving scientific measurable mechanism. They illustrate the paradigm shift from the content of stories to the plot of stories as a conflict resolving mechanism that unifies meaningfully parts into conflict resolving totalities.
This conceptual position revamps psychology into an exact science founded on recognizing the need for conflict resolution as the key motivational force. The creative process becomes the object to study reflecting the unconscious as both a scientific and moral phenomenon.

We consider religions as psychological not metaphysical phenomena. They represent moral monopolies as sanctifications of the alternative ways of resolving conflicts. The Moral Science integrates the religions by examining the cultural stories as purely scientific moral order measurable phenomena and merges them into the Moral Science.

The Formal Theory’s six-role process transforming conflict defined as passivity, antagonism, and alienation to resolution as mastery, cooperation, and mutual respect.

Maxwell Levis, PhD

Research Director

Maxwell Levis, Albert’s youngest son, leads the internship program and current research initiatives. A graduate of Columbia, Harvard, and Boston Universities, Maxwell completed PhD degree by creating the online delivery of the Conflict Analysis Battery. The online delivery of the battery represents a didactic, diagnostic and therapeutic instrument that popularizes the self-assessment as a concise program of emotional education.
He has coauthored with his father three of the recent volumes on the Formal Theory.


The Institute of Conflict Analysis and the Museum of the Creative Process explore the intersection of science and religion, psycho-education and psychotherapy, outcome research, integration of religions into the Moral Science.

The center therefore is a research and training not for profit organization dedicated to advancing the social sciences. We have pilot studies to introduce the concepts and the Conflict Analysis Battery, as a concise program of emotional education in hospitals, schools and academic centers.
