- delusion: see illusion
- delusion (n.)
- "act of misleading someone," early 15c.; as a form of mental derangement, 1550s, from Latin delusionem (nominative delusio) "a deceiving," noun of action from past participle stem of deludere (see delude).
Technically, delusion is a belief that, though false, has been surrendered to and accepted by the whole mind as a truth; illusion is an impression that, though false, is entertained provisionally on the recommendation of the senses or the imagination, but awaits full acceptance and may not influence action. Delusions of grandeur, the exact phrase, is recorded from 1840, though the two words were in close association for some time before that.
- 1. I was under the delusion that he intended to marry me.
- 2. He is under the delusion that he is Napoleon.
- 3. He is under a delusion in this matter.
- 4. This was not optimism, it was delusion.
- 5. It must need be a delusion.
