Example of Rogerian Argument

Named after American psychologist Carl Rogers. Rogerian argument is also known as 'common ground' argument. This method, also common in mediation, avoids polarization and seeks to create a working principle for agreement based on the common positions of parties to an argument. This technique is the basis of the common 'win-win' scenario. This is a logical process, and often simplifies the argument to a series of easily defined points.

Examples of Rogerian Argument:

We need the groceries, we can decide what else to buy later.
Neither of us wants to lose the dog. Let's work it all out on that basis.
