Definitions of Monism and Pluralism

*

Monism: There is a single ultimate cause of everything in the universe; everything in the universe can be traced back to a single cause.

Pluralism: There is more-than-one cause of everything in the universe; everything in the universe cannot be traced back to a single cause.

(Note: I am a pluralist - so was the philsopher William James; so are most Mormons, including Joseph Smith.)
