Technology and New Challenges for Privacy

A Special Issue from Journal of Social Philosophy

Technology and New Challenges for Privacy
Edited by Leslie Francis

This special issue examines philosophical issues raised by contemporary technological challenges to what has been understood as privacy. Do apparent rejections of privacy--as with willingness to share intimate details over the Internet or to allow government surveillance to intercept feared terrorist threats--signal privacy's demise? Or, are they harbingers of what might be characterized as a "surveillance paradox": valuing surveillance but only because of the protections of the person that it brings? These issues lie at the center of the papers in this special issue.

Read the full introduction to Technology and New Challenges for Privacy; it's free until December 31st.
