Hint: You can preview this book by clicking on "Preview" which is located under the cover of this book. About the author: Anonymity, adjective "anonymous", is derived from the... More > Greek word ἀνωνυμία, anonymia, meaning "without a name" or "namelessness". In colloquial use, "anonymous" is used to describe situations where the acting person's name is unknown. Some writers have argued that namelessness, though technically correct, does not capture what is more centrally at stake in contexts of anonymity. The important idea here is that a person be non-identifiable, unreachable, or untrackable. Anonymity is seen as a technique, or a way of realizing, certain other values, such as privacy, or liberty.An important example for anonymity being not only protected, but enforced by law is probably the vote in free elections.
