Pluralism is used in different ways across a wide range of topics. It denotes a diversity of views and stands rather than a single approach or method of interpretation:

In philosophy[edit]

  • Epistemological pluralism, methodologies for determining what we know – a set of untold truths about the world
  • Pluralism (philosophy), a doctrine according to which many rather than one (monism) or two (dualism) basic substances make up reality
  • Pluralist school, a Greek school of pre-Socratic philosophers
  • Value pluralism, the idea that there are several values that may be equally correct, even fundamental, and yet in conflict with each other
