We've all told lies and can think of reasons to justify them, but philosophers are surprisingly divided on whether deceit is ever ethical.

Dr. Clancy Martin is Professor of Philosophy at the University of Missouri Kansas City (UMKC) and Professor of Business Ethics at UMKC's Henry W. Bloch School of Management. A specialist in moral psychology and existentialism, he earned his Ph.D. from The University of Texas at Austin. A 2011-2012 Guggenheim Fellow, Professor Martin has authored, coauthored, and edited a variety of books in philosophy, including Love, Lies, and Marriage; Honest Work: A Business Ethics Reader (with Robert Solomon and Joanne Ciulla); and The Philosophy of Deception. He has published dozens of articles, essays, and reviews on Kierkegaard, Nietzsche, Romanticism, the virtue of truthfulness, and many other subjects. His writing also has appeared in Harper’s Magazine (where he is a contributing editor), The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, the London Review of Books, The Times Literary Supplement, and numerous other forums. Before becoming a philosopher, Professor Clancy was a successful businessman and owned a chain of luxury jewelry stores, a wine bar, and a mergers and acquisitions company. He is a Pushcart Prize-winning fiction writer and author of two novels, How to Sell: A Novel and Travels in Central America. His work in progress includes a book on the nature of will, a novel, and several essays, both philosophical and popular.

Testimonials

"Dr. Martin makes ethics viscerally relevant, and in a way that is fun and engaging. Oftentimes, he'll present the prevalent views and leave it to you, the listener, to decide how you would respond."
