What is a Pluralistic society?
This 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 is often mistaken for a society which tolerates different ethical beliefs or groups of people and holds that all are equal, which is correctly identified as moral relativism, a logically invalid position held by mush of the world today.

A pluralistic society is characterized by variations in ethnicity, religion, cultural heritage, socio-economic status, i.e. a "melting pot" as has been said of the US. By contrast, a homogeneous society would be primarily made up of one ethnic group, share a common language and heritage.
In public policy and power, elite-based theories speculate that the state is really controlled or directed by a small group of individuals, the elite. In pluralistic theories, public policy and power are seen as spaces where competing interests communicate and negotiate their desires.

The U.S democracy is neither plural nor majority governed. It is a combination of both. This may be hard to prove if this is for an essay. Pluralism beliefs state that governing decisions in the U.S are made by numerical minorities. This governing system is evident in government agencies, interest g…roups, elections (especially the outcome), public opinion, and is stated in separation of powers that "fears tyranny" (i.e majority rule). Parts of the electoral college are also plural. The U.S can also be described as numerically majority governed. The President is a majority figure. Votes in congress, the supreme court, the idea that the President and congress must follow the majorities opinion are also example of majority rule. (MORE)

We are not a melting pot like America. You have the freedom of choice to keep your religion and all your heritage. There is everything you can think of in Canada.
I think that this is a very individual question. By which I mean that Humans do not necessarily think alike. We all may have differing views on anything. We are all individuals (I'm not !!.......... Attributed to Monty Pythons Life of Brian) And so I would commend the view that it matters not who or… what you Worship but how you treat your fellow Human beings. And you might like to think this answer comes from an Atheist. And you would be wrong. If the Father of Jesus is the only God them does that make all the Hindus & Moslems & Sikhs & Jews and everyone else wrong ? I simply do not know what to make of this. But it is simply the example of what the Monty Python team were doing in Life of Brian: If this film (10th rate my **** !) affects your religious view then it is not the film that is in question, it is your Faith ! And so I say in conclusion that there are questions in this life to which there will not be any definitive answer. There are things which passeth all understanding. God moves in mysterious ways etc etc. Believe what you will, but just try to heed what I say about treating your fellow human beings, that's all I want to say. (MORE)

Is it possibble to have shared moral values ina pluralistic society that does not have shared beleaves?
Yes, moral values are as much a result of society as they are of religion. Religion is just a common source of morals. All cultures/societies are similar in some ways and so things like celibacy, adultery, murder, etc. will have similar moral implications on a social level.

The impact that a pluralistic society would have on businesses is good in the sense that there are different cultures living in one area. For example, in Pennsylvania, there are many small Amish towns, as well as normal cities surrounding them, the impact of the Amish people and the English people a…s they call it, is great since the Amish can sell their items to the businesses of the English people, giving the English businesses much profit and the Amish get the business from the English. Without such a society, English and Amish businesses would decline in finances, since the English need to pay little for Amish items and the Amish make out nice financially. (MORE)

I assume you mean "culturally pluralistic society" in the sense that: This is a form of society which is made up of people from different ethnic, religious and cultural backgrounds. A society which embraces minority groups and is tolerant towards them. Strictly and legally, yes, we have numerous… ethnic, religious and cultural groups in the US. We legally respect those groups and have no legal prejudice against us. Realistically and socially, no, we really don't. America does have numerous ethnic, religious and cultural groups, but we tend to hate people who are different and try not to tolerate them. Often we riot against them, claim they are stealing our jobs, claim they are taking "our" women and that they are going to massively breed out of control until they will use their barbaric ways to tear apart "our" way of life. We have expressed that feeling towards Irish, Scots, Germans, Poles, Czechs, Slovaks, Greeks, Italians, Jews, Blacks, Chinese, Japanese, Russians, Portuguese, Hmong, Mexicans, Cubans, Puerto Ricans and most recently, Middle Easterners (ie: Muslims) among others.

The simple answer is yes. There is a mainstream American culture, but it is composed of smaller subcultures within America. For instance, African-American culture and history form and contribute to American popular culture. So do European Americans, Hispanic Americans, Asian Americans, Native Americ…ans, Polynesian American, and Gay and Lesbian Americans, Conservative Americans, Liberal Americans, Christian Americans, Jewish Americans, Buddhist Americans, Muslim Americans, all also contribute and add to the cultural make up of America as a whole. However it is important to note that no subset of American culture exists independent from the others and as such is influenced by, and influences the cultural groups that interact with each other on a daily basis in America.

A pluralist view is one which accepts (or, at least, accomodates) more than one viewpoint. Typically, divergent views are incorporated into a thesis, an argument, or even a functioning government, to name a few. An antonym for "pluralist view" would be "singular view".
PLURALIST THEORY OF SOVEREIGNTY The classical theory of sovereignty established the legal character of sovereignty. It held sovereignty as absolute, perpetual, universal, inalienable and indivisible. However the application of monistic/classical sovereignty to the political field gives rise to ma…ny problems. It could not resolve the conflict between the state and government on one hand and between the individual and the state on other side. The pluralist theory of sovereignty seeks to resolve this dilemma. The pluralist sought to redefine the nature of the state as one of the several associations of human beings operating in the society to secure the multifarious interests of individuals. State act as an arbiter over conflicting claims of different associations. It repudiates the exclusive and absolute claim of the state to an individual's allegiance. The state should compete with other human associations to establish its claim to superior authority. In fact, the pluralist theory seeks to curtail or limit the absolute authority of the state as against the classical theory. The main exponents of Pluralist theory include Laski, MacIver, Maitland, Duguit, Krabe, Lindsay, Barker, and Dicey among others. Duguit argues that laws are not an expression of the commands of sovereign but also conditions of solidarity to social life of men. Krabbe proceeds to distinguish between law and the state. Lindsay while discussing the real personality of the associations describes state as one of the numerous associations of society. In short, the pluralist theory of sovereignty is based on the following main principles: â¢ The Pluralist Nature of Society: The society is pluralist in nature i.e. consist of various associations to fulfill diverse interests of individuals. Such associations include the family, church, religious associations, professional and cooperative organizations like trade unions, business groups and labour organization and other voluntary organizations. All these associations embody some social value and receive the allegiance of individuals. â¢ Role of the State as Coordinator: The state do not exist above the other associations in society but only as one these associations. It coordinates the activities of these associations in the society. It is means of resolving the conflicting claims of these associations. â¢ The State must justify its Claim to Authority: The privileged position of state doo not accord superior authority of state but a higher moral responsibility on the state. Thus, the state must justify its claim to authority on moral grounds by securing common interest or public interest. â¢ Decentralization of Authority: Pluralists maintain that the concentration and expansion of state authority at the top level undermines democracy and liberty of the individuals. The authority of the state must be decentralized in the interest of the society, democracy and administrative efficiency. In short, Pluralist political scholars like Laski , Duguit , Maitland , McIver and disagree with Austin that sovereignty is indivisible because pluralists think that society consists of number of associations for fulfillment of interests of people. People render obedience not only to state but also to these associations. The ultimate authority in modern states is the constitutional law of land, not state. Internally, the authority of state is limited by constitutional law; externally, state sovereignty is limited by international law, UN and other international organizations. Thus pluralist theory is evolved as criticism of Austin's classical theory by Laski, Barker, McIver, Duguit, Maitland, Cole and Lindsay. Pluralists began with premise that individuals are a bundle of interests; i.e., men and women are creatures of diverse interests and aspirations. To fulfill them, various political, socio-eco, and cultural associations have emerged in society. These associations exercise a certain degree of command over individuals. As a result, individuals obey not only the state, but also to a certain extent, these associations. Thus state can't have absolute control over individuals or their lives. Therefore according to pluralists, sovereignty is divided between the state and other associations. State doesn't enjoy supreme power over individuals/ groups but enjoys certain amount of authority.

A plural is something that has more than one component, as in grammar. For instance, man is the singular form and men is the plural form of the word. So in a pluralistic society more than one thing is going on. For instance, if we all believed in God as Christians that would be a somewhat singular s…ociety. But what we have today is a pluralistic society because there are many different belief systems. Another example is the difference between Godly wisdom and worldly wisdom, Christian ethics and worldly ethics. There are many other ideas I could illustrate this with, but I think you get the point.

Pluralistic is the system employed by the USA, its very simple really. Similar to Emergent health care its considered a consumer product and is really there to make money. This means that a client is nearly always paying for it, whether directly or through insurance (sure the insurance will eventual…ly catch up with the costs!) the big difference between pluralistic and emergent is that pluralistic is also partly owned by the state/government whereas emergent is wholly privately owned, but make no mistake, this doesnt mean that people get free health care such as in Britain, it just means that the money to pay for the healthcare goes to the government. Although there are some current methods to provide health care in the us for those most in need such as 'obama care', although this free health care is famously hard to access and you need to prove your 'poor' enough to qualify for it. Basically the characterstics are: -Considered personal consumption -Privately and publicly owned facilities -set up to make money -minimal state role -Physicians operate solo (although are often part of an organisation, but you get to chose who you want tending you, customer choice) -used in the USA (MORE)
