Michael Meade offers a consideration of the psychological complexes that shape the crisis of lying that now appears at the center of American life. Starting with ancient ideas about “word association” and touching on Carl Jung’s involvement in the invention of the polygraph or lie detector, Meade examines the relationship between words, the human pulse and the body politic. He ends with a fresh look at Plato’s ideas about the wisdom of myth and the great threat of the “ignoble lie”.
