Globalism "homogenizes human lives by imposing a set of common denominators (state organization, labour markets, consumption and so forth), but it also leads to heterogenization
through new forms of diversity emerging from the intensified contact" (Eriksen, 2007, p.
The collection subsequently turns toward migration, diversity, and solidarity, with two essays exploring the heterogenization
of Europe through immigration and the potential for associated decline in national cohesion.
Sen's countervailing social power deals with the tension between value homogenization and value heterogenization
The latter has been going hand in hand with the tension between cultural homogenization and cultural heterogenization
which is also known as the tension between universalism and particularism.
Liulevicius well illustrates how a combination of "traditional" prejudices, nineteenth-century racism, and a Bismarckian administration bent on forced social heterogenization
produced even more aggressive expansionist discourses.
The material is presented in sections on chiral monodentate phosphorous ligands, chiral bidentate phosphorous ligand diphosphines, mixed P-ligands, hybrid monophosphorous ligands, chiral polyphosphorous ligands, dynamic processes of P-ligands and their complexes, chiral ligands for reactions in alternative media and concepts of heterogenization
, P-ligands bound to chiral biomolecules, mixtures of monodentate P-ligands in stereo- and regioselective transition metal catalysis, general methods for the synthesis of chiral trivalent phosphorous compounds, controlling regio- and stereochemistry in metal-catalyzed and metal-mediated reactions with the aid of substrate-bound reagent-directing phosphine groups, characterization of P-ligands and metal complexes, and industrial aspects.
Miller looks at the opposite dimension that globalization also creates in culture--what might be called heterogenization
In Chapter 5 she examines the arguments for indigenization of foreign content and the heterogenization
Cultural homogenization and heterogenization
tend to come together over time.
Sociologists and anthropologists, however, have long noted an opposing dynamic: heterogenization.
Heterogenization fosters a cultural ecology where communities close in on themselves, becoming ever-purer enclaves of the similar, threatening catholicity on both the global and the local level.
Nevertheless, Barker argues against accepting the notion of homogenization and cultural imperialism and suggests rather that a postmodern approach to understanding this phenomenon leads to heterogenization
and localization by audiences.
