Professional standards: Can they shape practice in an international context? [Book Review]

Science and Engineering Ethics 4 (3):303-314 (1998)


A summary of the career of a Russian engineer who practiced a century ago in western Europe, as well as in Russia, provides an example of how ethical standards can influence practice across national boundaries. An examination of his career and his conception of engineering, of the evolution of engineering standards and codes, and of the process of formulating codes in particular instances explains how international standards can shape practice in an international context.
