Anthology Introduction: In bringing together leading scholars to address the tensions between privacy, security, and accountability, this anthology is intended to address the thorny value propositions of an increasingly interconnected and monitored society. Our hope is that by clarifying the moral, legal, and social foundations of privacy, security, and accountability, we can move towards determining the appropriate balance between these contested values. Advances in information technology development have introduced concerns and considerations that simply weren’t on the minds of most people as little as twenty years ago. The capabilities, opportunities, and anxieties being articulated by the authors in this collection are novel, ethically complex, and badly in need of sustained inquiry. We begin by providing an overview of the values under study.
