Abstract

There are problems with the thesis of von Hippel & Trivers (VH&T): (1) It entails that self-deception arises from interpersonal deception which may not be true; (2) it entails that self-deception is optimal which is not necessarily so; and (3) it entails that interpersonal deception is optimum which may not be true.
