Those who pioneered attention to religious plurality, along with the invention of “pluralism” as a guiding category for some of those pioneers, devoted little attention to matters of philosophical method, despite their focal interest in questions of truth, rival claims, multiple perspectives and matters of this kind. This is a notable lacuna which this discussion is intended to explore a little. Plurality extends not only to the phenomena to be investigated, and not only to the approaches available for those investigations, but also to the philosophical engines that power those approaches.",
