All Bullshit and Lies?

Insincerity, Irresponsibility, and the Judgment of Untruthfulness

Chris Heffer

  • Develops a comprehensive framework, Trust-related Untruthfulness in Situated Text, or "TRUST," which integrates linguistic categorization with ethical analysis
  • Argues that untruthful discourse can derive from irresponsibility rather than just insincerity
  • Provides a practical, step-by-step procedure for analyzing putatively untruthful claims in context
