Shingaku is a form of neo-Confucianism particularly influential in the Edo-period.  This series is not listed in Kuniyoshi by Basil William Robinson (Victoria and Albert Museum, London, 1961).  The images are each about 7 by 10 inches (18 by 25 centimeters), a size known as chűban.  Two images were printed on a sheet of paper about 14 by 10 inches (36 by 25 centimeters), a size known as ôban.  For a chűtanzakuban series having the same title see Moral Philosophy Illustrated for Children.
