Pluriverse names an understanding of the world in which countless groups of people create and re-create their own distinctive cultural realities, each of which constitutes a world.
This term is necessary because many contemporary crises stem from the belief that there is a One-World World, a kind of single Euro-modern reality.
To say that the world is a pluriverse is to say that there is no single source of being (that is, to invoke a plural ontology) and that no knowledge system is inherently superior to others.
A pluriverse is “a world in which many worlds fit,” as the Zapatistas say.
This points to a conundrum: how can the different societies that constitute the human species accept that many worlds must coexist together on a single planet?
