Ethics: Lecture 1 Introduction January 11 , 2016 -Preventative Approach -Traditional focus in courses & code -Focus on avoiding wrong doings -Focus on individual engineers (& relationships with clients and employers) -Aspirational Approach -Newer trending engineering ethics technique -Focus on good doing -Focus on how the world of engineering affects broader society of good & bad -The Need for Preventative Approach -Ethics seen as a personal concern -Mid 1800’s: professional societies form in US (Civil, mech, mining, electrical) -Early 1900’s: Adoption of code of ethics (except mining) -National Society of Professional Engineers -Code of Ethics (can be found online in engr 1181 website) Ethics Lecture 2: Introduction to Arguments January 13 , 2016 ­An argument is a set of premises followed by a conclusion.  *Look back at Phil of Edu notes for good examples of premises and conclusions. ­An argument is valid if it is not possible for the premises to be true, but the conclusion is false. (Given the truth of the premises, the conclusion of a valid argument has to be true.)  ­An argument is sound if it is valid and has all true premises.  ­Many arguments are not deductive; many arguments don’t “try to be” logically valid,  and that’s okay. Argument Analysis Step 1: Make the Argument Explicit (a) Identify the conclusion. ­What is the author arguing for? (b) Identify the explicit premises. ­What reasons does the author give to support the conclusions? (c) Identify any implicit premises.  ­Are there other (potentially debatable) assumptions that the author takes for  granted?  ­ Lecture 3: January 15 , 2016 Stevenson on Disagreement -Disagreement in Belief -Person A and Person B disagree on belief when person A and B believe a thing that can’t be true. -Disagreement in Attitude -Person A and Person B disagree in attitude when they both desire things that cant both happen.. *Agreement in belief does not necessarily produce agreement in attitude.
