Bad faith is a philosophical concept utilized by existentialist philosophers Simone de Beauvoir and Jean-Paul Sartre to describe the phenomenon in which human beings, under pressure from social forces, adopt false values and disown their innate freedom, hence acting inauthentically. It is closely related to the concepts of self-deception and ressentiment. The concept is closely related to Max Stirner's concepts of spooks, abstract ideas that have no real value of their own, however that are followed by humans like they would have a value of their own.
