Does everyone lie every now and again? Is it allowed to tell white lies?
Why do we want to know the truth?
Is there always just one truth?
Can animals lie?
Lies can have far-reaching consequences. But they can also be a last resort. When do we have to say the truth? Are invented stories not often the more interesting ones? This book contains many fascinating starting points to give thought to the lie and the truth.
