The problem of diversity has both propositional and practical com- ponents. There are many different religious traditions. The claims of these various traditions are often mutually exclusive. They can- not all express the truth about ultimate reality. Moreover, it appears that they cannot all be ways to fulfill the purpose of human life. For example, Christian salvation is very different from Buddhist enlightenment. The existence of different claims about ultimate reality and different paths to fulfill our lives’ purpose is the problem of diversity.
