SPARKS! Special: Ten Ethics Questions for Scientists and Engineers
Delft University of Technology
11:45 - Free lunch
12:00-1:00 pm lecture in room 1.98â¨
Science and engineering in the broadest sense not only help us better understand the world in which we live; these fields also increase the power that we hold over the world. Unfortunately, neither science nor engineering comes with a recipe how to use that power. This idea is captured by the writer Goswani who states that "Creativity unguided is a two-edged sword. It can be used to enhance the ego at the expense of civilization. One must apply creativity with wisdom." Helping students grow the wisdom how to use science and engineering responsibly is one of the goals of teaching ethics. In addition, students benefit from learning how to make ethical decisions in the daily practice of science. In this presentation, I present 10 ethics questions that help discover our values as scientists and engineers.
