Alan Westin, Historical Perspectives on Privacy: From the Hebrews and Greeks to the American Republic
Comment by: Alan Westin
Workshop draft abstract:
1. Can we define and conceptualize privacy across three thousand years of Western political history and, if so, what are the critical measures?
2. What are the constant elements in the privacy arena that are still critical to privacy dynamics today and what are the new elements of privacy values and struggles generated by advanced technology and the computer age?
