Argument From Principle Or Pragmatic Argument?

Arguments from principle insist that one MUST always do that which the rules stipulate.In one way, one is forced to apply mechanically to a rule which to a pragmatic person is unteanble.Pragmatic arguments insist on the reasonableness of positons.One has to do that which is reasonable;which can defy any known rule.But of these two types of arguments,pragmatic arguments,if always used they may cause one to go beyond the limits set by our conscience.There is need to strike a balance when using the two.
