Philosophy for Engineers

Philosophy in the engineering sciences is at the same time the philosophy of the engineering sciences. Concrete questions about ethics and social responsibility, scientific progress and contemporary freedom are asked and answered. What is the social-philosophical profile of the engineering sciences today? What do we really need from innovations? Which knowledge from philosophy is important for engineering sciences and why? With what aim are engineering sciences philosophically oriented and what does that mean for philosophy?

The categorical imperative for engineers - based freely on Immanuel Kant - is: "Act as an engineer only according to the maxim through which you simultaneously are responsible that it serves man and his true striving for knowledge, freedom and happiness".
