Abstract
I this article, I introduce the notion of pluralism about an area, and use it to argue that the questions at the center of our normative lives are not settled by the facts -- even the normative facts. One upshot of the discussion is that the concepts of realism and objectivity, which are widely identified, are actually in tension. Another is that the concept of objectivity, not realism, should take center stage.
Keywords objectivity  realism  pluralism  non-cogntivism  open question  deflationism  safety  conceptual analysis  Twin Earth  platonism
