This book helps engineering students carry over their natural analytical talents into a new area - moral deliberation. It shows them the importance of being analytical by stressing that many apparent moral disagreements are really disagreements over the facts or over the definitions of crucial terms, and that the locus of moral disagreement can only be discovered by analysis. Since engineers are interested in real-world problems, the text catches the attention of students in the field by focusing on cases that hit the front pages of newspapers (e.g., the Challenger disaster and the Ford Pinto gas tank) as well as those more typical of the sort they are likely to encounter in their own careers.
