Pluralism is a concept used in many fields and mostly means that things are done in many parts (as opposed to just a single way/thing in a system or dualism).
In political science it supports more than either one political party or two major dominant parties and thinks that even very minor parties are important.
In philosophy it contrasts monism and favours multiple ideas that could possibly form a structure than a reduced number of entities.
