Virtues of Mendacity
- On Lying in Politicsaf Martin Jay
Examines what has been said in support of, and opposition to, political lying from Plato and St Augustine to Hannah Arendt and Leo Strauss. This title shows that each philosopher's argument corresponds to a particular conception of the political realm, which decisively shapes his or her attitude toward political mendacity.
