Social Responsibilities of Technologists, Scientists and Managers

Anuradha Sharma (Editor) Raka Sharan (Editor)
Synopsis Social responsibilities of scientists, technologists, and managers has been the foremost concern of great scientists and social thinkers for many years, and this has often been debated through various for a and from different perspectives. This book highlights development and growth of organization and society through auditing, monitoring and forecasting of the impact of scientific and technological developments and managerial assumptions. In fact knowledge about technological analysis remains incomplete without understanding its effects on people. Based on the contributions of scientists, technologists and administrators, this book brings out the socio-technical concerns for development. Like many other books on the subject, this book does not take a negative and survival perspective. The set of ideas presented are neutral, developmental, analytical and systems oriented. It presents a deep concern for value system analysis. Social responsibility is still considered a fringe activity by average scientists and technologists. Perhaps that is the reason for lack of serious and systematic attempts to define the concept of social responsibility. This book mainly concentrates on the concept from the point of view of science and technology. The ideas of this book are presented under two broad groups i.e. macro and micro issues. The individual and organization concerns are generally classified as micro perspective and societal concerns in general are included in the macro perspective. The contributors draw the attention of technical education planners, teachers and policy-makers towards a fresh perspective of technical education.
