From the Publisher"Ethics, Technology, and Engineering: An Introduction is agenuine contribution to an already substantial literature on ethicsin the techno-lifeworld. Arising from within a world where humanslive more intensely integrated with and thoughtfully reliant ontechnology than anywhere else on the planet, this volumeconstitutes a new realization of historico-philosophicalpromise."
—Carl Mitcham, Colorado School of Mines
"Ethics, Technology, and Engineering takes undergraduateeducation in engineering ethics to a new level. It shows whyengineers need to reflect seriously on ethics, and provides themwith the tools they need to do so. This is exactly what we need toteach ethics to engineers."
—Sven Ove Hansson, Royal Institute ofTechnology, Sweden
"Van de Poel and Royakkers have written a most comprehensive,up-to-date, and readable text. Their discussion of the differentgrounds for, and ways of framing, moral problems likely to beencountered in engineering covers all the bases; their illustrativecases, drawn in the main from contemporary practice, are treatedcircumspectly and will no doubt provoke the kind of open discussionof engineering decision-making they intend. It is the besttreatment of this subject geared toward the undergraduate I haveencountered."
—Louis L. Bucciarelli, MIT
