Call for Papers Topical Collection Synthese: Alethic Pluralism and Its Critics

Guest Editors: Tom Kaspers (University of St Andrews/Stirling), Niccolò Pisano (University of St Andrews/Stirling), Crispin Wright (NYU/Stirling)

Topical Collection Description: It has been 30 years since the publication of Crispin Wright’s Truth and Objectivity, which marks the birth of the theory of alethic pluralism. In these past 30 years, the theory has gained a lot of support and we have seen the development of many detailed versions of alethic pluralism. However, these theories are still somewhat overlooked by alethic monists. We believe that, given the support gained by alethic pluralism over the years, it is about time that alethic monists engage with the view, for instance by showing how problems for which alethic pluralism is offered as a solution, such as scope problems, could be solved without giving up on monism. This topical collection is meant to facilitate a platform for the critics of alethic pluralism to voice their criticism and for its supporters to counter this criticism.

Appropriate topics for submission include, among others: mixed discourse, moderate vs. strong pluralism, realism vs. anti-realism, scope problems, comparisons between alethic pluralism and other theories of truth.
