The issue of company social responsibility has been increasingly debated over the past few years both in economic and management studies, while little attention has been given by sociologists and, in particular, by economic sociology. This essay aims at, if not closing, at least making this gap smaller. Starting from institutional studies and the new economic sociology, we will try to construct a new and sociology-based definition of the concept we are examining. It will be based on the differentiation between three different dimensions (explicit, implicit, and natural) of company behavior in terms of social responsibility. Possible advantages for empirical research on the theme will also be briefly illustrated.
