Abstract: In 2015, The International Journal of Pluralism in Economics Education published a 'Roundtable dialogue on pluralism' in order to reflect on the economics profession and on the theory and practice of pluralism within academia. This paper starts by analysing critically this roundtable and continues with the theoretisation of various modes of pluralism that have been implicitly or explicitly used by the respondents of the roundtable such as theoretical pluralism, systematic pluralism, reflexive pluralism. The paper also discusses the achievements and failures in implementing pedagogical pluralism and pluralist perspectives within and related to economics.

Keywords: education; democracy; pluralism; systematic pluralism; theoretical pluralism; reflexive pluralism; teaching; learning; pedagogical pluralism.
