More > man, Stephen Dedalus, Joyce's alter ego. His education is not only scholarly, but an intellectual, emotional and moral formation as he sheds himself of his Roman Catholic roots and develops as a writer.

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.
