Lies We Live By: The Art of Self-Deception
Eduardo Giannetti (au). What is self-deception (SD) & how is it different from deceiving others? Why is self-knowledge such a challenge for human beings? How is it possible for one to deceive oneself? What is the place of SD in our day-to-day lives? Here, Giannetti answers these fascinating -- & occasionally unsettling -- questions. From the simplest white lie to the most complex behavioral ruse, our innate tendency to twist the truth around is revealed in its entirety -- & for its surprisingly helpful purpose. The most intimate & treacherous relationship a person has is with him or herself. Inclined to lie to ourselves -- to believe our powers greater & impulses purer than they are -- we are masters of our own SD. A brilliantly engaging & provocative analysis of ourselves.
