Why does deception play such a prominent role in our lives? From a romantic relationship to a conflict at work to judging how we look in the mirror, deceit is everywhere, especially self–deception. The cost of this deception is alienating us from the truth. Robert Trivers explores why we behave like this in his book "The Folly Of Fools: The Logic Of Deceit And Self–Deception In Human Life."


Robert Trivers is a professor of anthropology and biological sciences at Rutgers University, and author of the book "The Folly Of Fools: The Logic Of Deceit And Self–Deception."
