Abstract

Many international academicians have detailed the determinants and motivations of corporate philanthropy offering significant insight. Yet attempts to objectify the organisation may have mistreated its complex social nature. Scholarship grounded in constructionist thought may allow us to explore and explain philanthropic behaviour and organisational complexity in ways which address contemporary research issues and stagnant conceptions.
