I received today this interview from the journal Human Givens, Volume 8, Number 4, 2001 from my friend Ezra Hewing. Ezra, like Maria and myself, has a great interest in the work of Henri Bortoft, and how his philosophical insights can be applied in business settings.
This interview leads on from the great dissertation by Richard Widows I have just published, in that Henri discusses the many ways in which entering into Goethe’s way of seeing can help us discover solutions to many organisational problems we face in business today, such as the limitations of a bureaucratic mindset and the need to move into a more intuitive form of perception.
