Don’t Lie! . . . Why Not?: How to Argue for Truthfulness in Medical Practice

Abstract

You have lied! You are a liar! This is one of the most serious moral offences one can be blamed for. Augustine even regards lying as the fundamental moral offence and identifies it with sin and evil in general. For Augustine and Kant, lying is in itself morally reprehensible and not justifiable at all.
