A world of total disclosure. The role of privacy in social life (in Polish)

Abstract

The title, "A world of total disclosure", refers to a thought experiment I propose to examine the role privacy plays in society. The experiment presents a society of complete surveillance. In it everything is recorded and archived for every citizen to view at any given moment. I argue that, contrary to the views held by many scholars, such a scenario is conceptually and empirically possible and retains all of the important values that are secured by privacy in the present world.
