The moral principle stating that it is a duty to tell the truth would make any society impossible if that
principle were taken singly and unconditionally.

The French philosopher constant refutes this principle, saying that it is a duty and that the concept of duty is inseprable from the concept of right.
"To tell the truth is a duty, but is a duty only with regard to one
who has a right to the truth."
