dc.description.abstractMuch like communication or logical thought, privacy has always been fundamental to human experience. The rise and rapid expansion of communication technology has brought the issue of privacy as a right and value to heightened levels of debate. In order to understand privacy's value, we must first determine what privacy is and what function it serves in human life. Having derived a definition of privacy as the reasonable expectation that one is in control of his or her personal information, this project establishes the role and importance of privacy for various social relations. I shall argue that reticence is a key element in the function of privacy; attention to this element makes apparent the nature and value of privacy.
