Abstract

This essay is about double lives and role-playing in law and society when and why it occurs, how the law responds to it, and its social meaning or significance.

The authors discuss situations in light of many examples, where it is (or was) considered wrong or illegal to live two lives; or where the "false" life is a lie of the type that would be considered gravely and impermissibly deceptive.

Keywords: False Identities, Criminal Law, Double Identities, Double Lives, Roles, Social Impact
