So, Then, What Constitutes a Lie?

The Nature of  a Lie

Proceeding from the natural law premise that all lying is immoral, one is then faced with the question of what constitutes a lie. 

All I can say is that if it takes this much thinking to resolve so little a problem, my life in philosophy would ultimately be a life of complete paralysis.  Also, given my obstinacy with respect to accepting "self-evident" axioms on which many of the arguments are based, I'm afraid I would be continually floundering.  Knowing this, I stay away from any but the most shallow philosophical discussions outside the realm of aesthetics, which I'm willing to argue for years because so little actually depends upon the outcome.
