The word concepto was taken from the Latin conceptus which means “to take”, “to conceive” or “to receive”. Thus, its main meaning is to represent what is thought about something, either starting from a general or particular worldview.

Little by little in the language this term was acquiring a polysemic character that preserves its origin from the Latin language. From this, it can be applied in different thematic contexts such as linguistics, narrative, economics, among others.


“Concepto Sentido” is an exclusive podcast on the Deezer platform in which participants discuss the meaning of a concept from various thematic perspectives. By May 2021 this podcast had at least 110 episodes.
