    You could do worse than reading one of these books, or both. With the courage to see people as they really are, and act on our generous impulses when we can, we can have more fulfilling and peaceful lives Perspectives on self-deception book home, at work, and even on the global stage of diplomacy and war. On the other hand, people who lack an adequate arsenal of exclusionary categories may, because they let in too much that is not worth considering, be flighty or impulsive; and those who cannot apply exclusionary categories to a specific area of personal importance may develop obsessive-compulsive neuroses. Since a lie is an abstractionthe mental process of creating a lie can only occur in animals with enough brain complexity to permit abstract thinking.
