The ethics of diversity do not have a normative foundation like consequentialism or deontology. They do not have a religious foundation either. Their starting point is the natural fact of diversity expressed as the varying ability to strive to survive and to maximize their control over the external world. This natural premise is nevertheless compatible with the idea of living together, since human beings maximize their prospect of survival and control by grouping with others.

Keywords: naturalism; foundation; religion; coexistence; strive
