Description

A core text or supplementary casebook for courses in Ethics; Applied Ethics; Engineering Ethics; Environmental Ethics; in departments of Engineering, Philosophy, and Environmental Studies.The first casebook designed specifically for engineering and environmental ethics, this text features full-length, multi-faceted, real-life cases of design and managerial dilemmas in a variety of settings-together with background readings that illustrate how one can integrate ethical and environmental challenges into engineering decisions, especially ones early in the design process. It presents the dilemmas as descriptively as possible-without revealing what the authors think are "proper" or "good" solutions-and encourages students to think deeply about real-life situations and to engage in "moral imagination."show more
