Abstract

This chapter offers different ways of comparing metaphysical points of view, and distinguishing between weak and strong notions of comparison. These encompass a spectrum of incompatibility to full agreement, distinguishing different ontological requirements that points of view must demonstrate in different occasions. Besides being the fundamental ground for everything else to sustain contingent and non-hierarchical relations between them, a description of Modal Perspectivism, which solves the problem of perspectival invariance, closes the chapter.
