Mejía Reátiga, Camilo
This doctoral research presents the results related to the contributions of critical theory to the construction of the concept of Social Responsibility, contrasting business practices in Barranquilla. This thesis has collected in detail the state of the art about the research problem, Social Responsibility, and developed the key assumptions of Critical Theory (CT) as a basis for a complementary foundation for Social Responsibility (SR). The research results were incorporated into field work (which includes four phases that are described in the research methodology chapter) through tables, graphs, frequency and comparative analysis of the collected data, the empirical evidence of the business practices of large firms in the city of Barranquilla. Finally, this thesis presents a proposal for a complementary foundation of social responsibility, contrasted with the business practice, from a conceptualized vision and elements derived from Critical Theory. Likewise, included spaces left open for future research, from the development of this doctoral research.
