What, when & where
Linguæ & – Rivista di lingue e culture moderne
Vol. 20 (2021) No 2
Intuitively, we all know what lying is. However, on a theoretical level, defining its nature and aims has been a core issue in many topical domains of human knowledge. This Call for Papers aims to develop an interdisciplinary discourse on the nature of lying and of phenomena directly or indirectly connected with it, such as deception and self-deception, illusion, forgery, fake news, manipulation of sources, and others. We will welcome contributions from literature and the other arts, philosophy, theology, history, philology, psychology, neurosciences, linguistics, and others. The output of this special issue should be a common core of insights linking the humanities with the social sciences and the ‘natural sciences’ so to enable a full-scope investigation of this fundamental phenomenon, and place it within the larger picture of what it means to be human.
