AbstractThe proceedings of the March 1982 Conference, hosted in Chicago by the Center for the Study of Ethics In the Professions, includes revised versions of the refereed papers, commentators' replies, an introduction by the editor, and a bibliography. Appearing in the order of presentation at the Conference, the papers focus on issues of individual moral choice for engineers and ethical aspects of institutional practices and public policy decisions which involve engineers. Topics covered include legal protection for whistleblowers, engineers' rights and responsibilities and their foundations, the implications of government regulation with respect to the responsibilities of engineers, ethical aspects of risk assessment and the use of cost-benefit analysis in decision making, creating an ethical work environment, and the responsibilities of professional societies. The volume also contains essays geared to teaching and to engineering education. These papers focus on a case history, engineering codes and moral theory, and the connection of engineering education and the workplace.
