My PhD project focuses on the distinction between lying and misleading. I am especially interested in questions concerning necessary and sufficient conditions for lying. Does, for example, lying require that one says something false, or is it possible to lie in other ways? Can one lie by using irony or metaphors? Does lying require an intention to deceive someone?
