Dupera: att missbruka kommunikation
Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
According to the widespread concept of deception, deception is to intentionally cause someone to acquire or continue to have a false belief. This paper refutes this notion and argues for a definition of deception based on a view that deception is the misuse of communication with the purpose to achieve a further end; an end that, is believed, can’t be reached without the misuse of communication. It is shown that this new definition can handle cases that earlier definitions could not handle without leading to absurd pragmatic consequences. In addition, the proposed definition makes it possible to properly distinguish between deception and attempted deception.
