The uses of self-deception

Behavioral and Brain Sciences 20 (1):124-125 (1997)
Abstract
The essence of a mental event such as self-deception lies in its function – its place in the life of an animal. But the function of self-deception corresponds to that of interpersonal deception. Therefore self-deception, contrary to Mele's thesis, is essentially isomorphic with interpersonal deception.
