This chapter explores an intriguing similarity between confabulation and delusion, namely the tendency in both for people to seek to justify their unjustifiable false memories or false beliefs when these are challenged. It begins with five examples that are very different from each other. What unites them is that all are examples of confabulation - a view that will be defended after presenting the examples.
