Deceit, lying, and falsehoods lie at the very heart of our cultural heritage. Even the founding myth of the Judeo-Christian tradition, the story of Adam and Eve, revolves around a lie. Biology reveals that lies are common occurrences in the natural world: plants and animals utilize falsehoods, deceit, and simulations to survive. Smith shows us how, by examining the stories we tell, the falsehoods we weave, and the unconscious signals we send out, we can learn much about ourselves and our minds. Its focus supports biology and anthropology, as well as psychoanalysis and philosophical reflection.
