Summary or Abstract : A quest for balance between scientific and moral concerns has characterized the history of psychology in America. Such a balance is unlikely, absent a clear identification of those concerns. Scientific concerns have been carefully addressed, but moral concerns have been underrepresented. Moreover, the field of moral psychology is unhelpfully fragmented. A comprehensive account of the moral aspect of behavior is needed to identify the form, application, and curriculum of a morally balanced psychology . The current body of psychological knowledge contains the necessary data. Prior organizational efforts may have been constrained by a developmental perspective. An evolving tradition within American psychology points to a more powerful solution. An integrative, pragmatic approach and multimodal epistemology were applied to an extensive literature review. Basic categories and concepts were identified for navigating and making sense of what can be a bewildering landscape. Input was gathered from neuroscience, genetics, endocrinology, ethology, evolutionary biology, social sciences, and the humanities. A scheme for organizing the moral aspect of behavior was presented in five dimensions: animal nature, human nature, personal nature, social nature, and conduct . Animal nature was elaborated to illustrate the scheme's explanatory potential. Three conclusions are supported: (a) There is a moral reality, (b) there is a natural orderliness to the moral aspect of behavior, and (c) there is an evolving moral tradition in American psychology from which a morally balanced psychology may be emerging. A morally balanced psychology recognizes the centrality of moral concerns independent of any religious connection; it engages the person as a moral agent and acknowledges its own moral agency; it is interested in all the properties and problems of morality; and it views moral care as the third pillar of mental health treatment, along with psychotherapy and psychopharmacology. A century of "value neutrality" has rendered psychology morally inarticulate and the clinician unprepared for the moral reality of the therapy session. An articulate knowledge of the moral aspect is both a practical advantage and an ethical obligation for mental health professionals, researchers and practitioners alike. A comprehensive moral component belongs in the core curriculum of a psychology education program..
