Pluralistic Theism is the view that there are different and equally correct conceptions of the divine, and conjoining these varying conceptions need not imply a (logical) contradiction. I show how this view explains the contradictions implied by religious syncretism in Southeast Asia. I then compare and contrast the theoretical merits of this view with those of Ninian Smart’s Philosophy of Worldviews and John Hick’s Religious Pluralism. I conclude that the former view explains the target phenomenon better than the two latter views.
