The theory of social pluralism emerged in the nineteenth century as a response to both the social failures and reductionist extremes of individualism and collectivism. Pluralism takes account of the social nature of human life and its differentiation into a variety of institutions and associations. This volume presents examples and evaluations of three forms of pluralist theory -- those based on historical doctrines of custom and tradition, Catholic doctrines of natural law and subsidiarity, and Calvinist doctrines of sphere sovereignty and creation, respectively. The authors place each of these three forms of pluralism in the context of American thought, provide several nineteenth and twentieth century readings to illustrate the depth and diversity of each form, and then compare and evaluate them at length.
