It is not uncommon to describe the efforts of engineers, the results of these efforts and the specific knowledge employed in normative terms. Take, for instance, ‘The engineer, and more generally the designer, is concerned with how things ought to be – how they ought to be in order to attain goals, and to function’ (Simon 1981: 7).
