Delusions have long been seen as a hallmark of madness, but what makes something a delusion? People have mistaken beliefs without being called deluded, and the beliefs of deluded people can be true. In this talk, these and other difficulties with defining delusion will be explored from the points of view of both theory and clinical practice.
