When, if ever, is lying acceptable. This little test from the Open University in the UK gives you the opportunity to compare your views to those of Bentham, Kant, and Aristotle.

To lie or not to lie

Proceed through the test using the NEXT button. Click on each philosopher after you have entered your rating of each lie presented to get the philosopher's rating and reasons.
