Title: Ishani Maitra (Michigan)
Title: Title: Lying and deception: A happy marriage

Abstract: Traditionally, lying has been understood to involve an intention  
to deceive. There is a long history, going all the way back to Augustine,  
that characterises lying this way. More recently, however, a series of  
examples have been proposed to show that lying involves no such intention.  
In response to these examples, theorists have largely moved away from the  
intent-to-deceive tradition. In this paper, I argue that this is a mistake,  
in part because it leaves us unable to explain some moral features of  
lying. I focus on two kinds of purported counter-example to the  
intent-to-deceive tradition, and make three claims about these disputed  
cases. First, I argue that much of the evidence offered to establish the  
absence of an intent-to-deceive in fact doesn’t show this at all. Second, I  
draw on a more deflationary account of intention to argue that in some of  
these disputed cases there is an intent-to-deceive after all. Third, I look  
at some contemporary characterisations of lying, and argue that they are  
committed to implausible conclusions unless they also tacitly appeal to an  
intent-to-deceive. I draw some general conclusions from this discussion,  
for lying as well as for other speech acts.
