Utility Reassessed: The Role of Ethics in the Practice of Design

Distributed Exclusively in the Usa by St. Martin's Press (1999)
Abstract
This sparkling collection of essays both defines and reassesses the concept of Utility. Using it as a touchstone for the consideration of the place of ethics in the recent history of design, the collection offers a way into the issues which concern design decision-makers today. It offers previously unpublished research into diverse topics such as the investigation into the hitherto undiscovered designs for a utility vehicle, and it reveals a fresh perspective on the philosophy behind the concept of Utility as a design theory.
