Throughout his writings, Immanuel Kant offers, but does not clearly defend, the claim that evil involves self-deception. Laura Papish's Kant on Evil, Self-Deception, and Moral Reform explains why Kant sees self-deception as implicated in evil and how, by contrast, human beings can develop a self-knowledge that facilitates moral reform.
