AbstractIn this book, the author concentrates on a set of issues crucial to engineering ethics and seeks to outline a philosophy of engineering as a profession. The volume looks at the history of engineering, the role codes of ethics play in engineering practice, ands well as how social organization and technical requirements combine to define how engineers should (and presumably do) think.
