Pluralist views of morality hold that there are multiple fundamental moral principles, and that these principles can require incompatible courses of action. So on the pluralist view, there can be a basic, underived moral reason to perform an action and a basic, underived moral reason to refrain from performing it. This conflict may be not merely apparent but real, and there may be no way of dissolving the conflict. I argue that Hume’s sentimentalist account of morality is pluralist, and also that Humean sentimentalism is the most powerful basis for moral pluralism.
