We make values explicit when routines break down. I do not deduct a particular pragmatic way of dealing with such conflicts from a position of value pluralism, something that seems to have attracted the ire of my learned colleagues in this debate. Instead, it is the other way around. I used value pluralism to explain not only how administrators dealt with difficult choices but also that, in the large majority of cases, they managed to arrive at decisions that seemed judged to be reasonable. This makes for a very different project than my colleagues make it out to be.
