Right, my tutor for Contempory and Pervasive issues (AKA: 101 ways to state the obvious) has asked me to find out different ways of analysing stuff, ie: Looking at things in different contexts.

The subject he's asked me to analyse is corporate social responsibility, and has said I can analyse it in the following ways:

Ethically
Morally
Economically
Politically
Socially
Technologically
Legally

While I dont want this to turn into a thread on Corporate Social Responsibility, are there any other ways I can analyse this subject in adition to the ways I have listed?

Mathematically.

Try a course in Real or Complex Analysis and tell him about it!(Don't forget your epsilons and deltas).

Mostly a combination of:

Logicaly
Economically
Socially
Technologically

In that priority order.

Personaly? As in a direct inference from your own experience with the subject? Or is that just logic?

Quickly, badly, correctly, etc...

Basically how things can be done wrong or right, which is the cause of bad judgement calls.

Probably repeating a few from other posts but my head's on a bit backwards right now. Tired.... -__-;

scientifically:
The amount of power in terms of horsepower/jules of energy in relation to growth potentials, for example.

Comparatively but this aspect can be combined with existing ways you've listed.

Spiritually -I think this might be pretty tricky.

Logistically -this can have a lot of tie ins with existing elements listed and can tie in leadership aspects.

Psychologically? There's a fairly well-known agit-prop documentary in which the behaviour of a corporation is compared with that of a psychopath. The idea has merit, in my view.
