Leaders can build “celebrity” but will no doubt feel bereft. For the world of the celebrity leader is veneer-thin. – Timothy Willard
For too long, the issue of self-deception has been the realm of deep-thinking philosophers, academics, and scholars working on the central questions of the human sciences.
