ABSTRACT:
A discussion is presented on the differences between honesty and integrity. Integrity requires three steps: discerning what is right and what is wrong; acting on what has been discerned, even at personal cost; and stating openly that one is acting on one's understanding of right and wrong. The difference between honesty and integrity is that a person may be entirely honest without ever engaging in the hard work of discernment that integrity requires: She may say quite truthfully what she believes without ever taking the time to figure out whether what she believes is good and right and true. Several examples, which illustrate how honesty does not necessarily add up to integrity, are discussed.
