The Lies We Live by: The Art and Uses of Self Deception
One might have suspected that the not-so-subtle tentacles of evolutionary psychology had arrived at the inner sanctum of the fragile, illusory pile we vainly term "identity" when sexuality and romance were reduced to functions of reproduction and survival in such books as The Red Queen and The Mating Mind. But when a book arrives that illuminates not only why we lie to others, but why we lie to ourselves, then the temptation not to know becomes overpowering. But wrestle yourself back to the edge of the precipice, because Eduardo Giannetti is exactly the man to tell us why we would rather live in denial in an adventurous and thrilling quest into the truth about lies. As an eloquent historian of ideas, rather than a scientist, Giannetti approaches his subject by intriguing routes. In the natural world, he surveys the art of deception, from orchids simulating female insects in order to trick the males, to human babies simulating misery to manipulate their parents. He considers chemical deception introduced into the body by drugs and the role of self-deception in individual acts of daring. In addition, he unmasks the degree of self-interest and partiality we hide from ourselves but are more than ready to spot in others. Science may illuminate, but Gianetti's approach satisfies by weighing up not only the "hows" and "whys" of self-deception, but also the ethical implications as they reflect upon the individual and impacts on society. Sceptical about self-help books about self-knowledge, his entertaining and provocative analysis opens up a rich horizon for self-deceivers and foul dissemblers everywhere.--Fiona Buckland--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
