Strange Bedfellows: Jack Welch and Martin Heidegger

  • Steven Segal


It is now time to turn to the philosophy of Martin Heidegger. His philosophy is central to an understanding of the philosophical experience. But his philosophy is notoriously difficult to grasp. Because it is difficult to grasp, I shall develop it through examining the experience of Jack Welch in becoming CEO of General Electric. Jack Welch is still thought of as one of the most fascinating CEO’s of the last 50 years. Part of the fascination with Welch is that he was able, in the early 1980’s to anticipate, rather than simply respond, to the changes that would come about as a result of globalisation and changes in technology.
