At the dawn of Europe, an extraordinary Greek philosopher-engineer-biologist named Aristotle strove to develop a code that the good person could live by. Aristotle’s concepts have much resonance with us today. Although there are differences in the way in which we perceive things, basically we all share the same aspirations and needs.
This new edition will be of value to the globally-focused engineer and scientist; it includes case studies from both developed and developing nations to help students and practitioners unravel the complexities of ethical practice in the 21st Century. It is testament to the global and indefatigable nature of our scientific community that 2,300 years after Aristotle, we might derive the same conclusions as he did.
