Various electromagnetic scattering approximations beyond the Born assumption have been published during the recent years. This paper introduces a simple framework of analyses and investigates in a systematic way the fundamentals of the proposed theories. Our main focus is to demonstrate the link and similarities between the different scattering approximations employing a common physical basis. Based on analogies established we try to bridge the apparent gap between existing theories as well as introducing possible extensions and refinements.
