2024 Roseman Lecture in Practical Ethics (Niko Kolodny, UC Berkeley)
Thursday March 14, 2024, 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
This year’s Roseman Lecture will be delivered by Niko Kolodny, a professor of Philosophy at the University of California, Berkeley. His main interests lie in moral and political philosophy.
Reflections on Privacy
This lecture is a tour through a larger project. The larger project asks three questions, to be answered together: What justifies the duty of privacy? What does the duty of privacy require of us? Do current digital practices violate this duty? Like all tours, this tour stops longer at some locales than others, and passes by still other locales altogether. First, the tour questions whether the interests that the literature supposes justify the duty of privacy do in fact. Second, it considers certain digital practices and discusses their relations to the duty of privacy.
The Roseman Lectures in Practical Ethics are sponsored by Ellen Roseman and the Constance and David Roseman Fund at the Toronto Community Foundation.
