Where do private lives end and public lives begin? Personal confessions in the public media, the posting of personal data on Facebook, the rise of 'therapy culture', the blurring between work and private life – these are just some of the issues discussed and analyzed in Modern Privacy. Here, sociologists, philosophers, historians and legal scholars from the US, Europe and Australia reflect on the dilemma of privacy with a focus on contemporary trends. Rather than giving a merely descriptive account, the volume evaluates the conditions of privacy – and so of our autonomy – which are most conducive to individual and collective flourishing.
