Filosofía de la ingeniería: Una disciplina profesional en construcción

  • Diego Fernando Jaramillo Patiño Universidad del Quindío. Armenia (Quindío, Colombia)

Resumen

Mientras que la ciencia y la tecnología han estimulado investigaciones filosóficas en sus propios campos, una reflexión de esta naturaleza es poco común en la ingeniería. En la actualidad, la filosofía de la ciencia y la de la tecnología son disciplinas profesionales perfectamente establecidas. Este trabajo pretende mostrar que la Filosofía de la Ingeniería es un campo en construcción que cumple las condiciones para ser una disciplina filosófica profesional: comunidad académica, agenda de investigación y órganos de difusión. Para ello, realizamos una exploración bibliográfica descriptiva que nos permita identificar los momentos constituidores de la disciplina, ubicándolos en una línea de tiempo entre 1998 y 2014. Este trabajo consta de dos partes. La primera presenta el “giro empírico” en la filosofía de la tecnología como evento fundacional de la filosofía de la ingeniería; la segunda, la serie de eventos que, como consecuencia del “giro empírico”, constituyen propiamente la disciplina en el tiempo.

Palabras clave: Ciencia, Tecnología, Ingeniería, Filosofía de la Ciencia, Filosofía de la Tecnología, Filosofía de la Ingeniería, Comunidad Académica, Ontología, Epistemología, Ética.
