Without doubt, elevated to this level, the action by which a man permits someone to cheat others will compromise the one by which he does not want to be cheated himself. The opposition now seems to have been transported to the legal realm, but does this antagonism imply a real contradiction: wanting and not wanting to be cheated? We believe that this apparent opposition is only due to a certain equivocation in the term 'to want', which here plays a dual role, both active and affective.
