Produktbeschreibung
The ethics of engineering is relatively unexplored compared to other professions, but interest is undergoing a revival. "Engineering Ethics" provides engineers with an inspiring view of the overall ethical direction of their profession in a way that has direct practical outcomes for their work practices. Key features include: concern with the overall ethical direction of engineering; a focus on military engineering and water provision in developing countries; the relation of engineering ethics to medical ethics and business ethics; the development of an original ethical analysis, providing a challenge to current views; an original analysis that leads to specific suggestions for changes in engineering education, institutions, industry practices and the public positioning of engineering, as well as suggesting an aspirational role for engineering in international political initiatives. The book will provoke debate among engineers, philosophers and the educated public. TOC:Introduction.- What is the Issue?- Traditional Ethical Viewpoints.- Ethics in Medicine and Business.- Reflection.- Outline of an Aspirational Engineering Ethics.- Practical Outcomes.

Rezensionen
From the book reviews:
Engineering ethics is a breath of fresh air for those of us who have argued for many years that the engineering profession needs to dramatically widen its sense of ethical responsibility to include issues of war and peace, as well as social justice. The book makes an important contribution to the changing notion of ethical principles in engineering and engineering education. makes significant and tremendously important strides in challenging the engineering profession to broaden its sense of ethical responsibilities. (George D. Catalano, International Journal of Engineering, Social Justice, and Peace, Vol. 3 (1-2), 2014)
