Pluralism in Political Philosophy

This article talks about Pluralism in Political Philosophy which assumes that diversity is beneficial to society and that autonomy should be enjoyed by disparate functional or cultural groups within a society, including religious groups, trade unions, professional organizations, and ethnic minorities. It is the recognition and affirmation of diversity within a political body, which permits the peaceful coexistence of different interests, convictions and lifestyles. Political pluralists are not inherently socialists, liberals or conservatives but advocate a form of political moderation.
