The backdrop against which this paper situates its main theme is the multicultural society. Multiculturalness has become a fact of life, one with which one will have to reckon.

However, there is more to it than mere facts. These days one often hears appeals for a new attitude, a new ethos.

The problem that this contribution wants to pose is whether such a pluralist ethos is possible
