Meaning of Heterogeneity

What is Heterogeneity:

Heterogeneity refers to a group or mixture made up of several different and visually distinguishable elements.

Heterogeneity is somewhat heterogeneous, that is, the elements that compose it are differentiable from each other and form, in turn, part of the same set, mixture or group.

In philosophy, the principle of heterogeneity of the German Immanuel Kant (1724-1804) establishes that the specific concepts involved must have something in common that unites them under the same generic concept. In turn, the specificity of each element must be distinguishable.

Synonyms of heterogeneity can be found: variety, complexity, diversity, plurality, multiculturalism.

Social heterogeneity

In sociology, social heterogeneity is a term used to refer to society as a social group made up of people with different characteristics, be it social class, race, or gender.

Social heterogeneity in turn implies a cultural difference called cultural heterogeneity. In this sense, the acceptance that different cultures are part of the same group that we call society, helps us to a cultural diversity, personal growth and mutual understanding and understanding.

See also Cultural diversity.

Structural heterogeneity

Structural heterogeneity refers to asymmetry and disparity in the productive and occupational field.

In this sense, the Chilean structuralist economist Aníbal Pinto (1919-1996) warns that there are high productivity actors in the same group together with those with low productivity, a phenomenon that is especially evident in the periphery areas.

Genetic heterogeneity

Genetic heterogeneity indicates a series of similar phenotypes (physical characteristics) that can be determined by different genotypes (biological characteristics).
