A pluralistic society is any society in which citizens can legally and publicly hold multiple competing ethical views and are allowed to choose for themselves what ethical beliefs if any they wish to hold. It’s one whose influence is drawn from many different sources. It is often mistaken for a society which tolerates different ethical beliefs of people.
Pluralism is a community of people or organization groups were representing the social interests of a group of citizens. It is the basic social framework within which business operates in the United States.
“A society capable of continuous renewal would be characterized first of all by pluralism by variety, alternatives, choices and multiple focuses of power and initiative. We have just pluralism in this society.” John.W. Gardner.
“Today’s society and polity are pluralistic” – Peter F. Drucker.
So, Pluralistic Society is a diverse one, where the people in it believe all kinds of different things and tolerate each other’s beliefs even when they don’t match their own. On other hands, pluralism is a social system in which diverse groups maintain autonomous participation and influence.
