Abstract:

This paper makes use of Taleb’s antifragility concept as a theoretical lens in viewing corporate social responsibility (CSR). In business, philanthropic CSR falls as a fragile execution of social responsibility; corporations sharing their core values with the community may be considered a robust practice of CSR and corporations initiating community-based projects can be classified as antifragile CSR from the point of view of the project beneficiaries.
