Privacy & Freedom in the Information Age www.reddit.com

Philosophical question for the members of this community:



Ethicists debate whether privacy has intrinsic value or only instrumental value.



Some (Posner, 1981) think that privacy is valued in itself, even if it doesn’t secure any other benefits for us.



While others (Parent, 1983) think that we only value privacy because it is an instrument that gets us other things we value, like autonomy, dignity, freedom, etc.



I’m interested to hear the opinions out there.
