THE manufacture of any goods can be divided into two mental actions: that of contriving and designing, as pure brain work; and of production, as a combination of mental and handicraft processes. Invention and design signify intellectual “construction” in the same way that production deals with material “construction.” The engineer, no matter whether designer or production engineer, is, therefore, the “constructor” in the truest sense of the word.
