types of pluralism

Moral pluralism is the idea that there is not just one moral system, but even this is a little crude. We could be pluralists about moral actions, or moral systems. In other words, there may be two permissible systems for me to follow, but I must pick one to give my allegiance to. Or, I may be able to live by two systems at once, sometimes acting from the rules of one system and sometimes from the rules of the other.

Also, what should count as pluralism. What if I’m allowed to save either of two people in a certain situation, does that mean there are two moral systems I’m allowed to operate under, or is there just one system that permits either outcome?
