A Note on Calumny [Note sur la Calomnie]. (Revue Philosophique August. 1916.) Ossip-Lourié

  • J. Barfield Adams
Extract

The calumniator, says the writer, is neither a liar nor a mythomaniac: he is a false interpreter. The suggestion of error, the base of the lie and of the myth, is not absent from calumny, but calumny is not, as the lie and the myth, the creation of a fiction. It is the disfiguring or alteration of the truth. It is a false interpretation, generally voluntary, of a quality or of a truth.
