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:

Neither of us wants to lose the dog. Let's work it all out on that basis.
