The past decade has marked a period of significant development for pluralist theories of truth. This chapter utilizes several distinctions to categorize the current theoretical landscape and then compares the theoretical structure of four pluralist theories-namely, strong alethic pluralism, alethic disjunctivism, second-order functionalism, and manifestation functionalism. The chapter concludes by arguing that it is difficult for adherents of the three other pluralist views to reject the viability of some form of alethic disjunctivism. By this it is meant that, by the lights of each of these other views, there is a disjunctive truth property that ought to qualify as a legitimate truth property.
