 Review: Perspectives on Self-Deception
An analysis of self-deception should be constrained by the data, as given by a rich range of intuitively acceptable examples and, for that matter, by a rich range of unacceptable ones (self-deception is distinct from such other psychological phenomena as belief perseverance, dogmatism, wishful thinking, denial, and repression).
And insofar as the meaning of “self-deception” is a function of the meanings of “self” and of “deception,” an analysis cannot be oblivious to the meanings of the words making up the phrase.
It is true only because we wouldn’t describe as deception a case in which these justification conditions were not met, and it obscures the fact that there could be the same discrepancy between the deceiver’s expressed attitude and his real attitude even when these conditions are not met.
