The Psychology of Lying [electronic resource]: Sissela Bok

Public Affairs Television (Firm)
Format
Video; Computer Resource; Online Video; Online
Summary
Americans never know nowadays when they'll wake up to yet one more disclosure of deception in government; from the U2 affair to the war in Vietnam, from Watergate to Iran-Contra, and in a steady stream of daily information and misinformation, the bond of trust between the government and the governed seems frayed to the breaking point. Can a republic die from too many lies? The question has become critical for the future of democracy. As a philosopher, Sissela Bok grapples with hard truths-and with hard untruths, as well. In this program with Bill Moyers, Bok explores the psychology of lying, the consequences of deception, and the perils of keeping secrets.
