Abstract : The invitation to present this paper suggested that it might seek to organize privacy concerns in some overall framework. How can the many dimensions of privacy be all put together? How can the various perspectives on privacy be harmonized? Can a focus be provided to give some guidance to the legal and judicial systems of the country? Behind these questions is the observation that the l egal, judicial, and legislative communities -- as influenced by moral and ethical views -- are dealing with privacy issues one by one as they arise. So to speak, the issues are dealt with disjointly and in the small rather than in the large. There seems to be no cohesion presently across the fabric of privacy. (Author)
