This chapter distinguishes between various senses in which one might be a pluralist about logic. In several of these, pluralism is uncontentiously correct. The difficult issue is whether there are different accounts of validity that are equally correct. It argues for logical monism in this regard.

Keywords: logical pluralism; application of logic; validity; Batens; da Costa; Restall; Beall
