It is claimed that a good dialogue participants view their dialogue partners’ contributions as justified by revealed reasons rather than by hidden causal mechanisms. An experiment is reported where politicians and ordinary citizens discussed issues in immigration politics. The participants were divided into two experimental groups (where they were asked to take their opponents’ perspective) and one control group (ordinary discussion). Against expectations, it was found perspective taking did not make participants more reason focused, when explaining other participants’ contributions to the discussion. However, all participants tended to view their fellow participants as more reasons driven than was true for how they viewed other people in general. It was concluded that just giving an opportunity for citizens and politicians to talk with each other increase possibilities for a good dialogue.
