    Abstract

    En este ensayo se presenta la teoría de la polarización desarrollada en economía, su relevancia para explicar el surgimiento de conflictos sociales y sus principales diferencias con la teoría más conocida de la desigualdad. En particular, se resume la estructura de identificación-distanciamiento desarrollada por Esteban y Ray, así como el índice propuesto por estos mismos autores y algunas de sus extensiones, como la polarización explicada y la polarización de grupos.
