When Are We Self-Deceived?

Abstract

This article’s point of departure is a proto-analysis that I have suggested of entering self-deception in acquiring a belief and an associated set of jointly sufficient conditions for self-deception that I have proposed.  Partly with the aim of fleshing out an important member of the proposed set of conditions, I provide a sketch of my view about how self-deception happens.  I then return to the proposed set of jointly sufficient conditions and offer a pair of amendments.
