Overview

LYING AND DECEPTION

IN HUMAN INTERACTION

Mark L. Knapp, University of Texas at Austin

Lying and Deception in Human Interaction provides students and lay readers with a critical understanding of deception that is necessary for evaluating the integrity of the messages they receive and send in daily life. The primary focus of the book is to help readers understand how and why deception is a natural part of our daily experience

The author’s lively writing style engages the reader as a multitude of real life examples demonstrate the relevance of visual and auditory deception in human interaction. Deception, as a form of communication, is represented in the behavior of all living organisms and has been a part of human behavior for millions of years. Lying and Deception in Human Interaction enables its readers to seek more accurate ways of identifying deceitful behavior and to effectively cope with the challenges it presents.

Features:

  • Teaches readers not to trust everything they see or hear at face value, but to dig deeper and become skilled consumers of information.
  • Incorporates highly pertinent cartoons, illustrations and photographs to make reading the book more riveting from start to finish.
  • Encourages discussion between students to help them learn the truth about deception, not only from the text, but from their fellow students and the experience of real-life successes and failures.
  • Provides an in-depth treatment of ethics as related to lying and deception, thereby helping students to become better citizens through an understanding of their own values and those of others.
