Every human relationship, whether between lovers, friends, family members, or colleagues, involves trust or distrust. When we trust, we take for granted that others are not out to harm us; we relax and feel safe. When we distrust, we are fearful; we withdraw and try to protect ourselves. In Dilemmas of Trust Trudy Govier explores the profound effect trust and distrust have, not only on our relationships but on our outlook on the world and our sense of self.
