Perspectives on Self-Deception
Erratum (October 2017)
It has been brought to the attention of UC Press that the following chapter in Perspectives on Self-Deception is published under a pseudonym: "Leila Tov-Ruach", "Freud on Unconscious Affects, Mourning, and the Erotic Mind", pp. 246-263.
UC Press would like to clarify that “Leila Tov-Ruach” is a pseudonym used by one of the co-editors of the volume, Amélie Oksenberg Rorty.
