Sebastiano Moruzzi and Filippo Ferrari will present their work in progress "Alethic Pluralism, Deflationism, and the Integration Challenge"

Abstract: A core motivation for alethic pluralism—roughly, the thesis that propositions concerning different subject matters are true in different ways—is the explanatory inadequacy of deflationary conceptions of truth. Among the various ways in which truth can be explanatory, we focus on normative explanation—
i.e. the issue whether truth is needed to account for the normative aspects of enquiry. Pluralists, contra deflationists, have argued at length that all admissible truth properties have a nature which importantly contributes to explaining the normative significance of an array of phenomena such as disagreement, and correctness. This is due to an influent argument put forward by Crispin Wright known as the Inflationary Argument. Elsewhere, we have argued that Wright’s argument is not globally successful. The domain of basic taste offers a counterexample. This suggests that the truth property operating in that domain is non-normative. Alethic pluralism must then be made more ecumenical and allow for a non-normative truth property among the local truth-realisers. The question at the core of this paper is then: how do we integrate a non-normative truth property within an alethic pluralist framework? Call this the Integration
Challenge. Two broad metaphysical models of alethic pluralism have been proposed: (i) Strong Pluralism maintains that there is a plurality of truth properties, each of which operates as the truth property for one or more domains, with no generic truth property applying to all domains; (ii) Moderate Pluralism maintains that in addition to the various domain-specific truth properties, there is a generic truth property operating across all discourses. We develop and assess two strategies for alethic pluralists to meet the integration challenge. We argue that the first strategy is highly problematic for all existing versions of alethic pluralism while the second is only available to strong pluralists.
