What can Goethe teach people in business? Otto Scharmer interviews Thomas Johnson

What can Goethe teach people in business? Otto Scharmer interviews Thomas Johnson | The Landscape Café | Scoop.it

Otto Scharmer: Tom Johnson’s recent work is organized around the following underlying question: How would we think differently about an organization if we viewed it as a living system rather than as a machine.? Living systems evolve according to the same universal principles that have guided the evolution of the cosmos over the past 15 billion years. The evolution of the cosmos embodies three fundamental principles: self-organization, interdependence, diversity. This change implies a fundamental shift of mind. A shift of mind from a mechanistic, “Newtonian” type of thinking to another perspective that conceives of reality as a living system. Following Bortoft, Goethe, and Bohm, Johnson suggests that the whole is manifested in (and between) the parts. Says Johnson: “I think one of the biggest changes is for managers to start to see the whole mirrored in the parts.”
