Justification One's degree of rational justification for believing a proposition is the degree to which one is entitled to think it true. In many cases this will depend on whether or not one has good reasons -arguments that are rationally persuasive for one - for thinking so. Rational justification can be distinguished from pragmatic justification, according to which one is justified in believing something if believing it has desirable consequences. Rational justification and pragmatic justification do not always coincide.
