The Heterogeneity Hypothesis
This chapter elaborates on the thesis developed in the book: the Heterogeneity Hypothesis. While most psychologists assume that there are numerous properties common to all concepts (the Received View), the chapter proposes that the class of concepts divides into kinds that have little in common. The Heterogeneity Hypothesis is also contrasted with theories of concepts that are superficially similar—the hybrid theories of concepts—in order to prevent their conflation.
