The most recent epistemological evolution of corporate social responsibility (CSR) is analyzed to extend previous state-of-the-art research by de Bakker et al. (2005 and 2006) both in management and marketing literatures. A three judges based Content Analysis of 570 papers published from 2003 to 2006 in indexed management and marketing journals shows that, for this period, the epistemological evolution of CSR is framed within a Progressive view in both disciplines. Findings help to discard that CSR evolution exhibits a Variegational stance, and to confirm that, as in the previous 30 years (1972-2002), CSR epistemological evolution from 2003-2006 does not strongly express high priority to a Normativist view.
