    I am flattered that Hetherington, Daniel, and Brown (1994) took the time to respond to a prepublication version of my article in the form of a commentary piece. They have raised a number of interesting and relevant issues and, despite their criticism of methodological pluralism, they have provided an example of one limited approach to methdological pluralism (critical multiplism). In the short amount of space available for my reply, I am unable to respond to every point raised. Instead, I will focus on the fundamental differences between the approach to studying environmental values that they advocate and my approach. The differences run deep, because we live in different philosophical and disciplinary villages.
