Book Description

The essays is this volume--written by prominent philosophers and academic lawyers--examine various aspects of both the right to privacy and the roles that this right plays in moral philosophy, legal theory, and public policy. Some of the essays discuss possible justifications for privacy rights, basing them on classical liberal principles or the considerations of moral pluralism. Other essays criticize prevalent foundational arguments for privacy rights, asserting that for various reasons the existence of a right to privacy as a fundamental right is dubious. Some of the essays examine the role that privacy plays in American consitutional theory, asking how various privacy rights have been justified by the U.S. Supreme Court and how privacy has generally been handled by the prevailing methods of constitutional interpretation. Still others assess how privacy considerations affect certain issues in medical ethics, such as the proper extent of access to medical information and the normative status of the right to die.
