Modern society faces two problems: the development of acceptable methods for the introduction of new and powerful tools and the need for a trustworthy, universally applicable ethical system. Part of the problem may be attributed to the lack of a reliable system of ethics that can be brought to bear on the issues of new biotechnology, information technology, and chemical industry. Ethics, Tools, and the Engineer describes and defines the role of the engineer and tools in society.

This book gets to the heart of the ethical issues that pertain to living in a rapidly changing world where most changes result from the activity of engineers. It describes what a tool is, the benefits or dangers involved in using tools, and how they are used by engineers today. It also includes laws and guidelines and how our society is dealing with these issues.

From the earliest rudimentary tools to today's cutting edge applications, Ethics, Tools, and the Engineer explores the principles, ethics, and regulations to which today's engineers must adhere. It provides in-depth background and history along with novel approaches to traditional subjects that will challenge the way you think about tomorrow's world.
