Abstract: The task of this paper is to clarify the notion of pluralism and religious pluralism against the background of disputations on the globalized challenges of religious pluralism, for example the incompatibility between different conceptions of religious pluralism, especially from the lens of a possible conversation on religious pluralism between Jurgen Habermas and Emmanuel Levinas.
Habermas says that religious doctrines can potentially deliver the profound truth on important public matters.
They consider reconstruction in social theory, history, and practice, discussing othe True, the Good, and the Beautifulo in European social thought; Axel Honneth's work on Hegel's theory of normative reconstruction; the dichotomy between aporia and euphoria; Erving Goffman's work; Weber's social theory as a basis for understanding suffering, in addition to the work of Emmanuel Levinas; Rowan Williams, Hans-George Gadamer, and JErgen Habermas and religion; the intellectual and political origins of the Swedish, egalitarian, democratic welfare-state ideology in the 1930s; and the political philosophy of Europe and Habermas' model of reconstruction.

In this respect, we call on the thinking of Habermas, who has made various contributions to a theory of reason, or rationality, including the interplay of theory and practice, as well as knowledge directed by interests.
