White Paper

We have authored a White Paper on the philosophy and science of honesty. In the White Paper, we first outline some of the reasons for why we believe the study of honesty is important. Next, we distinguish five ‘Big Questions’ which we take to be central to work in this area, followed by some background material on conceptual issues and empirical research related to honesty. The remainder of the White Paper highlights the empirical research that will be conducted by the Wake Forest and Carnegie Mellon teams, and ends with some examples of research questions that could arise under the heading of the five Big Questions.
