What do you think? Pragmatic or not?

Hi, i was just wondering if you could argue that as well as maths being objective truth you can as well say that it could be pragmatic truth?

"Truth happens to an idea. It becomes true, is made true by events. Its verity is in fact an event, a process: the process namely of its verifying itself, its veri-fication." - William James

I was thinking because calculating is a process and hence if correct it verifies the answer? Do anyone get what I mean? :)
