Friedrich Alfred Krupp

(p.89) Three Science

Harold James

Princeton University Press

This chapter turns to the next generation, and examines the business ethic and the political and personal life of Friedrich Alfred Krupp. Friedrich Alfred Krupp is described a rather kind and gentle person who tried to improve relations with the workforce, who also reflected endlessly about the problems of his age and tried to find answers based on modern science. Furthermore, the chapter shows that, in just the same way as the regime of Alfred Krupp had seemed to mirror the establishment of the German Empire and the Bismarckian political settlement, Friedrich Alfred's world corresponded to that of Wilhelmine Germany, and Wilhelminism was above all about size and power.

Keywords:   Friedrich Alfred Krupp, Wilhelmine Germany, Wilhelminism, business expansion, Kaiser Wilhelm II, armaments, political engagement, business ethic
