Rogerian argument – Wikipedia

Young, Becker, and Pike proposed four phases that a writer could use to construct a written Rogerian argument:[87][88]

  1. “An introduction to the problem and a demonstration that the opponent’s position is understood.”[87]
  2. “A statement of the contexts in which the opponent’s position may be valid.”[87]
  3. “A statement of the writer’s position, including the contexts in which it is valid.”[87]
  4. “A statement of how the opponent’s position would benefit if he were to adopt elements of the writer’s position. If the writer can show that the positions complement each other, that each supplies what the other lacks, so much the better.”[87]
