Summary

This text bridges the gap between theory and practice in engineering ethics. The authors provide real-life cases, structured methodology foranalyzing cases, and examples of cases that have been analyzed to give students a true understanding of what is involved in practicing ethicalengineering. Codes of Ethics are also provided and discussed. This book helps engineering students to carry over their natural analytical talentsinto a new area: moral deliberation. It shows them the importance of being analytical, stressing the fact that many apparent moral disagreementsare really disagreements over the facts or over the definitions of crucial terms, and that the locus of moral disagreement can only be discoveredby analysis.
