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.

Other essays examine the role that privacy plays in American consitutional theory. 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.
