People tend to think of the person who fails to live up to their own conception of what we are morally required to do as a hypocrite. On this view, if one thinks, and publicly says, that something is morally required but then fails to do that thing, one is a hypocrite. But is such a person necessarily a hypocrite? I am tempted to say no. Suppose this person also thinks, and publicly proclaims, that quite generally people lack good reason to do as morality requires in such situations. Then this person is living as they recommend to others to live. Thus I think they are not a hypocrite. I wonder if others agree? Is hypocrisy a matter of failing to live up to the moral ideals one thinks are required of others or it is a matter of failing to live up to the ideals one thinks others ought to live up to, whether they are moral ideals or not?
