"Runes defines pragmatism as a philosophical movement stressing practical consequences and values as standards by which concepts are to be analyzed and their validity determined. In other words, pragmatism is the philosophical notion that ideas or principles are true so far as they work. Runes further states that, in general, pragmatists rely on empirical or experimental methods and reject apriorism innate or intuitive process and mechanisms of knowing as a source of human knowledge."
