Engineering Ethics: Ontology and Politics
Conlon, Eddie
"Ontology...acts as both gatekeeper and bouncer for methodologyā€¯ (Archer 1995: 22). This exploratory paper, through a focus on the relationship between structure and agency, examines the underlying social ontologies informing the teaching, and researching of the teaching, of engineering ethics. It argues that current approaches are deficient and that Critical Realism can provide the basis for a more robust and inclusive research agenda for understanding engineering practice and the teaching of engineering ethics.
