    Abstrakt

    The notion that science leads to technology is manifest in the writing of modern history. As an important metaphor of modernity in the engineering discourse, the idea of the relation between science and technology and its impact on society being a one-sided affair can be traced back to the beginning of the 19th century. The analysis is focused on the political construction of the Danish polytechnic Institute and the development in engineering discourse in the period 1830-1930. The ideological changes in the discourse are considered an political effect of the second Industrial Revolution, which took place in Danish society during this time.
