Self-deception vs. self-caused deception: A comment on professor Mele

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 20 (1):104-104 (1997)
Abstract
Mele's study of philosophical and psychological theories of self-deception informatively links the conceptual and dynamic aspects of self-deception and explicates it without positing mutually inconsistent beliefs, such as those occurring in two-person deception. It is argued, however, that he does not do full justice to the dissociation characteristic of self-deception and does not sufficiently distinguish self-deception from self-caused deception.
