Q. I wanted to know where I can find information on why a person should be honest and not lie?
These phrases may be helpful when searching library databases for information about lying:
“truthfulness and falsehood”
“truthfulness and falsehood” AND ethics
“truthfulness and falsehood” AND “social norms”
Be sure to use the quotation marks when you search.
For books and videos, start with the UHD Library Catalog http://www.uhd.edu/library/ (click on the Catalog tab)
For other sources, see the UHD Library Databases at http://www.uhd.edu/library/ (click on the Databases tab).
I recommend these databases, which can be selected from the “Databases by Title” list at the top of the screen:
(1) Gale Virtual Reference Library – I searched for the word lying and found some basic entries about lying.
(2) Academic Search Complete – Search the phrases listed above
(3) Philosophers Index – Search for the word truthfulness
