DOMINGOS, Maria de Lurdes Costa. Social responsability on work organizations: benevolence or guilty?. Psicol. cienc. prof. [online]. 2007, vol.27, n.1, pp. 80-93. ISSN 1414-9893.

The social responsibility of organizations includes concrete actions publicly displayed to announce a new position of the controllers of the production systems facing the contradictions and tensions provoked by capitalism in society. From a psychosociology viewpoint, our objective is to think over the emergency of this subject beyond the traditional positivist discourse. Firstly, we will analyze the subject as part of a "new social order" affirmed with globalization. In this sense, we will consider the importance of understanding it in its complexity, as order and chaos simultaneously, rationality and subjectivity of the capitalist system that created it. Later, we will highlight the social responsibility in organizations, as a revelation of their concern about social sustainability, but also as a remission of guilt for the destruction that the productive system imposes to the immense majority of humanity.
