Common Debates in the Philosophical and Legal Privacy Literature

Are there any common threads to the legal and philosophic privacy arguments? Careful exploration of the legal and philosophical privacy debates reveals that they express common concerns and that a framework for thinking about the definition and value of privacy can be constructed from them. In this chapter, I show how this framework emerges from thinking about such theorists as Anita Allen, Ferdinand Schoeman, and William Prosser.
