Not quite on chemical engineering, but this book really made me think of my role as an engineer, and how a lot of the decisions we make on a regular basis cannot be evaluated objectively, and how for that reason it is really important to develop and maintain a strong ethical foundation.

All of these books by Samuel C. Florman are great in their own right, but will really click with an engineer with a more artistic mindset.

The Existential Pleasures of Engineering
Engineering and the Liberal Arts
The Introspective Engineer
The Civilized Engineer

Not much to add but a relevant high quality book.

There is a book "the existential pleasures of engineering" by Samuel Florman, I think he mentioned it there. All engineering professions evolved out of military engineering.
