'Self-knowledge' and 'self-deception' are not so much the themes of this book as its primary tools: these concepts act as mirrors through which it is possible to reflect upon questions about the self. Strandberg explores what it is that becomes visible when we use these concepts as a means of looking at ourselves. The aim is to acquire a better understanding of what we mean when we ask the question 'who am I?'.

By approaching the question from the perspective of morality and love - the perspective in which other people really become visible - Self-Knowledge and Self-Deception illuminates the ways in which one becomes visible to oneself through one's relations to others. One central example is remorse, love's way of beginning to bridge the gap between self-deception and self-knowledge.
