We hear a lot about the conflict between use of an individual's information for the public good and that individual's privacy concerns. In this talk organized by PFC Academic Fellow Michelle N. MeyerCharles Fried, Beneficial Professor of Law at Harvard, examined the deeper conflict that arises when an individual is used to generate information--public or private--in the first place. Professor Fried revisited some of the foundational questions that animated his groundbreaking 1974 book, Medical Experimentation: Personal Integrity and Social Policy

With support from the Oswald DeN. Cammann Fund.
