Self-deception : a critique of Alfred Mele’s theory of self-deception Zhang, Yixi
This thesis deals with some basic philosophical problems of self-deception. Following a detailed exposition of Alfred Mele's account of self-deception, it shows that Mele's account is inadequate but can be improved by a reason explanation of self-deception that is based on a concept of deception narrower than the one that Mele has been using.
