Religious Diversity (Pluralism)

The Pervasiveness of Religious Diversity Religious diversity exists in a striking way between religions that are theistic and those that are not. For instance, the monotheistic religions Judaism, Christianity, and Islam agree that there is a sole God. Hinduism, by contrast, typically recognizes many gods and goddesses, although some varieties of Hinduism, which count these many deities as aspects of a single God, may be monotheistic. Other strands of Hinduism are henotheistic, worshiping one deity but recognizing many others. 2. One obvious response to religious diversity is to maintain that since there exists no divine reality — since the referent in all religious truth claims related to the divine is nonexistent — all such claims are false.

When the topic is approached in this way, philosophers normally center discussions of religious truth claims on three basic categories: religious exclusivism, religious non-exclusivism, and religious pluralism.

A synthesis of the world’s plentiful and varied races, religions, and cultures, America is a home to all, such that no one group can call itself more “American” than another.

Our Diversity in America collection takes a good look at what it means to be “American” and examines the rich heritages that make up our country. Each culture provides its own special and irreplaceable contribution to our understanding of America today, and The World & I Online showcases this here.
