.ideal role-taking. Gets you...

Any morally judged subject puts itself in the position of all who would be affected if a problematic plan of action were carried out or if a controversial norm were to take effect. Argumentation insures that all concerned in principle take part, freely and equally, in a cooperative search for truth, where nothing coerces anyone except for the force of the better argument.
Ah, that's dialectics; and of a quite Hegelian variety, too.
But, then, Hegel is dead, isn't he?
