Summary

Humans have always sought to change their environmentbuilding houses monuments temples and roads. In the process they have remade the fabric of the world into newly functional objects that are also works of art to be admired. In this second edition of his popular Existential Pleasures of Engineering Samuel Florman explores how engineers think and feel about their profession. A deeply insightful and refreshingly unique text this book corrects the myth that engineering is cold and passionless. Indeed Florman celebrates engineering not only crucial and fundamental but also vital and alive; he views it as a response to some of our deepest impulses an endeavor rich in spiritual and sensual rewards. Opposing the ''anti-technology'' stance Florman gives readers a practical creative and even amusing philosophy of engineering that boasts of pride in his craft.
