Pluralism (Part II): New Concept of Pluralism


Pluralism is the inherent natural fact of human life. But this pluralism becames the problem when it is faced with the certain unifying and uniforming concepts on knowledge, value, politic, culture, and so on. Substantively, certain universal concepts of modernity are very useful. This concepts are produced by dialectic between the deeply general comprehension and real experiences on history, and they had gained auto-critique continuously.

Exactly, the natural fact of human isn’t just the plurality. The human tendency to consolidate with other sunstance/man and the sameness in pluralism state are the parts of natural fact too. Moreover, the unique individual identity is just be implementated in interaction with the other. The diversity is clear in the fact of sameness, and diversely the sameness is useful in the reality of diversity. This tension actuates and mints the dynamic of life. The tension between the unity and separation, diversity and sameness, universality and locality is the major issues because the emergence of globalization threatens the local particularity. In this situation, the concept of pluralism emphasizes redefining on diversity and sameness.

Context of pluralism, exactly, has some states: global-national, national-local, individu-community. The comprehension of pluralism in every states is very different. But, this difference has the main view/attitude. The elemental view on pluralism must be developed by the creative discursive interaction and the concrete cooperation that builds the cohensive group and rational objectivity of political party.

This discursive interaction is absolute thing because the collective concepts that receptacles the colective interests are relevant if they are gained by real process of dialogue. The dialogue helps the accession of conceptual rarefaction on pluralism, although this critical dialogue brings the uncertainty of systems, the unsafeness believing the value, the assertion to change the self-consciousness, and the bravery to live relatively.
