Description: The chapter lines out an evolution in the development of the "Engineering Ethics" discipline. In early years, the profiling of engineering as a "learned profession" seemed to be the first interest. With World War II, and with the later emerging of environmental issues, the focus was shifted to the ethics of technology. Finally, the ethical implications of different streams of philosophy of technology are indicated.
