Abstract
Part I defines the notion, Distinguishing between it an equality of value, And analysing some of the sources of incommensurability. Part ii argues that not only the roughly equal can be incommensurate, And for the possibility of significant incommensurabilities. Part iii argues that the common denial of the comparability of various options provides sufficient evidence that they are so
