1st Global Conference: Deception

Thursday 17th July – Saturday 19th July 2014, Mansfield College, Oxford, United Kingdom

Call for Presentations
We have entered a 'post-truth era', in which, Daniel J. Boorstin notes, 'believability' has become an acceptable substitute for 'truth', and 'manifold deceptions of our culture' are difficult to separate from 'its few enduring truths'. In this era, communities and individuals may feel routinely duped, cheated or betrayed. Though truth may be considered intrinsically valuable, deception may sometimes be useful or necessary. Sometimes there is pleasure in the spectacle of deception.
