Udja – Maat viewed as a Social Science? Do you mean as part of the educational curriculum? Then you are really talking about having political and economic power – the power to define an educational curriculum.

But the scholars such as yourself have made a tremendous effort to establish it as moral ideal in spite of the base aspect of the human personality …DUA!
