This chapter emphasizes the relation of narration to practical reason and the giving of good reasons. Not only does the explication demonstrate how policy narratives relate to factual information, but also to group identities and collective action. Offering an example of the use of narrative story-lines in climate change policy research, the chapter closes with a discussion of the concept of validity as understood in narrative analysis.

Keywords:   storylines, narrative understanding, policy narratives, social meaning, qualitative methods, validity, climate change research
