quote Stated something by choice unquote
18 Nov 2013 21:50
quote Stated with knowing intention. For example, wilfully stating something untrue would be lying, whereas simply stating something untrue may not be. In the first case, the intention is to state something untrue; in the second it might be that something untrue was stated, but the person intended their statement to be truthful. Since the example usage above already includes 'do not believe to be true' I suppose that wilfully stating something untrue is more than simply stating something one believes to be untrue, unless it's pleonastic. The difference might be illustrated by the following example. Someone can state something that they believe to be untrue, but wouldn't be willfully stating something they believe to be untrue--or lying--if they did not believe *that* they believed it to be untrue. This could work in one of two ways that this could work. The first could be simply that our own mental states and beliefs are not always transparent to us. We can forget or not be aware of a piece of information--a certain belief-- that we have, which we later recall or become aware of again. However, we wouldn't say in this case that the person stopped having the belief during the period of forgetfulness or non-awareness and then gained it again later. Rather, it seems more natural to say that they ceased to believe that they had such a belief. So it seems there is at least some distinction to be made between believing something and believing that you believe it. Wilfully stating something that you believe to be untrue, or misleading, or obscurantist, or whatever, is at least stating something that you believe that you believe to be so. The second is that otherwise a certain ignorance can prevent someone identifying their beliefs correctly through no fault of their own. For example, I may believe that Darth Vader isn't my father. I'm not aware, however, that Anakin is Darth Vader. If I'm asked whether Anakin's my father, and I reply 'Yes', it could be argued that I have stated something I believe to be false, since Darth Vader is Anakin, and so the fact that Anakin is my father is the same fact as Vader being so, and I believe this to be false. However, I couldn't reasonably be accused of lying. Willful stating rules out this sort of scenario, if it's coherent. unquote
