Ferguson It offers powerful insights into the ways in which those who create three dimensional things notably engineers and architects think A convincing counter argument to the claim of some philosophers that all thought is verbalThis book had its origins as a 1977 article in Science Great as the ideas are expanding them to book length was not all

    (E–pub/Pdf) Engineering and the Mind's Eye AUTHOR Eugene S. Ferguson A careful and heartfelt study of the problems that occurred when math and calculations came to replace instead of augment personal experience and the ability to visualize in engineering The map is not the territory and the simulation is not reality Reality is messy and complicated and lacks sharp limits and those things will cause you grief if you don't look out Or in Rudyard Kipling's words This new ship here

Being neither a scientist nor an engineer I don t know what my view is worth I think one can call it a philosophical book about engineering I m not sure if I can follow the author s view but for me it is a challenging one I like to be challenged one that keeps your mind sharp and awake But anyway the book contains many interesting references to other books and marvellous pictures that seem extremely interesting to read A good book for a layman like me with an interest for science engineering and philosophy

Eugene S. Ferguson Ø 1 SUMMARY

SUMMARY é Engineering and the Mind's Eye Inking as of euations and computation He argues that a system of engineering education that ignores nonverbal thinking will produce engine. A Summary Ferguson s thesis in this book is that good engineering reuires intuition and non verbal thinking as much as it does theoretical abstract euations and computation He argues that engineering education that ignores this non verbal style will produce an engineer who is incapable of understanding how the real world differs from a mathematical model Ferguson traces design engineering from antiuity to the present He ends his narrative with an example of what happens when the non verbal intuitive side of engineering is ignored disasters such as the Hubble telescope and the Challenger The problem with this book I think is that he never looks at the failure of the minds eye or practical engineering Ex Tay Bridge disaster and the transformation in Britian from a practical to a theoretical based engineeringB Preface1 The minds eye is the nonverbal process that an engineer uses to manipulate devices in his mind 2 This book examines the significance of nonverbal thought in engineering3 Until the mid 20th engineers were taught how to understand engineering drawings by making them4 They understood the nature of materials through experience5 Since WWII engineering education has trended away from nonverbal nonmathematical knowledgea Engineering sciences are higher in status and easier to teachb The engineering education which ignores nonverbal learning will produce graduates who are ignorant of the way the real world differs from the mathematical worldC The nature of engineering design1 Two steps to design Conversion of minds eye visions to drawings drawings converted to finished product2 Design is not a formal seuential process that a flowchart can capture3 Design includesa Empirical observations mental invention prerotation of tiresb Design is also affected by the engineers style Ex Edison s style included a rotating drum with a stylusD The minds eye1 Ex To find ones position from a map the minds eye is reuired to convert 2D to 3D information2 The minds eye is in the right side of the brain artistic musical and spatial ability3 There is less of a status for this visual thinking Thinking in words scientific has prestigeE The tools of visualization1 These tools began in the Renaissance2 Pictorial perspective Allows the representation of 3D objects3 Orthographic projection 3 views of an object Typically called an engineering drawing4 Models provide tactile and visual informationF The computer overthrows the minds eye1 After WWII a change occurred in engineering design education or practice began to loose out in favor of the prestigious engineering science mathematical theory 2 The computer has replaced much of the minds eye in engineering3 CAD programs will perform the stress testing that was once done by slide rule4 The slide rule provided the engineer with a feel for the problem5 In the 1980s engineering education has abandoned the graphical representations of knowledge in favor of the accurate analytical mathematical methods6 The paradox is that despite the belief that analytical tools will increase precision there have been a great number of high profile engineering failuresa Three Mile
