The professional approach to engineering ethics: Five research questions

Science and Engineering Ethics 7 (3):379-390 (2001)
This paper argues that research for engineering ethics should routinely involve philosophers, social scientists, and engineers, and should focus for now on certain basic questions such as: Who is an engineer? What is engineering? What do engineers do? How do they make decisions? And how much control do they actually have over what they do?
