Love, seduction and violation…. One introductory premise you must grant me if you are to assent to any of the rest of this essay is that one necessary ingredient for developing a theory or philosophy of argument is the arguer him or herself. I mean something more than a mere recognition that it is people, after all, who manipulate evidence and claims and follow the rules of transforming premises into conclusions. I maintain that the nature of the people who argue, in all their humanness, is itself an inherent variable in understanding and evaluating an argument. Perhaps as good a way as any to distinguish the study of logic from the study of argument is to understand that logicians can safely ignore the influence of people on the transaction, arguers cannot. My focus in this essay is on the arguer.

I thought this article was very engaging. Having a good share of arguments in my life, I never really considered the different stances of communication used in arguments.
To me, it was always about getting my point across, being right, and just winning the argument. However, Brockriede provides a different perspective of how members of an argument should conduct themselves.
The comparison of arguers as the various types of lovers was a tool that I appreciated. Not only is it wrong to aggressively express your arguments, but it also prevents your opponent from creating useful points. The seducer is also a comparison that he made to an arguer. Brockriede points out that seducer relies on manipulating the argument. This made me think of those people who twist your words and molds the argument so that it fits their point.
They're simply arguing just for the sake of winning. The point of arguments is to present both opposing points so that each other can have a better understanding of the other's ideas. The seducer nor the rapist in this case will help both parties from reaching that point.
