This chapter describes the formal structure of deception, rather than explaining why it is morally wrong. In particular, it describes the difference between four analytically distinct kinds of deception referred to, respectively, as ‘lying’, ‘merely misleading’, ‘falsely exculpating’, and ‘falsely inculpating’.
