Pluralism is, in the general sense, the affirmation and acceptance of diversity. The concept is used, often in different ways, in a wide range of issues. In politics, the affirmation of diversity in the interests and beliefs of the citizenry, is one of the most important features of modern democracy. In science, the concept often describes the view that several methods, theories or points of view are legitimate or plausible. The term pluralism is also used, in several different senses, in the context of culture, religion and philosophy.


  • ...all earlier pluralist societies destroyed themselves because no one took care of the common good. They abounded in communities but could not sustain community, let alone create it.
    • Peter Drucker, The New Pluralism Leader to Leader, No. 14 (Fall 1999)
  • Cultural pluralism is the only thing we all have in common.
