AbstractThe author discusses three fundamental aspects about engineering ethics that that makes the subject interesting. First, there is confusion about what the "ethics" in engineering ethics is. Second, there is confusion about what the 'profession' of engineering is. Third, there is confusion about what the discipline of engineering is. These fundamental confusions in engineering ethics connect with philosophically interesting work in moral theory, political philosophy, and philosophy of science.
