Summary
"Ethics, Tools, and the Engineer describes and defines the roles of the engineer and tools in society today. It gets to the heart of the ethical issues that pertain to living in a rapidly changing world where the most preeminent changes result from the activity of engineers. It describes what a tool is, the benefits or dangers involved in using tools, and how tools are used by engineers. It also includes laws, guidelines, and the ways by which our society deals with these issues."--Jacket
