I've read this here:
Empiricists see empiricism as a pragmatic compromise between philosophical skepticism and nomothetic science; philosophical skepticism is in turn sometimes referred to as "radical empiricism."]
And this here:
But if we can distinguish pragmatic, moral or legal reasons from epistemic reasons, then we will need to distinguish questions about what one pragmatically, morally or legally ought to believe, from questions about what one epistemically ought to believe.
On both quotations, the word pragmatic is used, I've already read on wikipedia and britannica encyclopedia about it, but they are mentions to an object with large number of properties and when I asked some friends in one forum, they said me I could understand it as "useful", although I have my doubts - it's a simple translation when I have two sources that tell me it's so extensive - I'm stuck with this word for some months, can you help me?
