Once more with feeling: The role of emotion in self-deception

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 20 (1):110-111 (1997)
Abstract
In an analysis of the role of emotion in self-deception is presented. It is argued that instances of emotional self-deception unproblematically meet Mele's jointly sufficient criteria. It is further proposed that a consideration of different forms of mental representation allows the possibility of instances of self-deception in which contradictory beliefs (in the form p and ~p) are held simultaneously with full awareness.
