Lying. Sam Harris

Author and neuroscientist Sam Harris argues in his book Lying that our lives and, indeed society in general, would be much simpler and better if we replaced telling lies with telling the truth. While Harris only focuses on “white” lies — those well-intentioned lies we tell to spare others from pain — his analysis and prognosis is insightful. Now, time for him to focus on the other 70+ types of lie.
