Is pragmatism useful in society?
in History

Definition: dealing with things sensibly and realistically in a way that is based on practical rather than theoretical considerations.

In economics: A pragmatic situation is one that draws from experience and involves a quick choice, and not one that is thought over very long.

Pragmatic can also be synonymous with problematic in some instances.

Pragmatic can also mean bringing change to society.

A good debate is not judged by bias, but in the context of the debate, where objectivity is key and rationale prevalent.

  • Yes, financial predictions in companies, etc. should be based on facts not emotions or opinions or they may be innacurate. That role may be necessary to create a more accurate report.

  • Pragmatism may be beneficial to a society (but not 2001: A Space Odyssey levels of pragmatic.)

    Oh for sure! I think that in economics, pragmatism can be useful in promoting small businesses, but too much of it can eventually envelop a society into error and poor markets.
