What is the point of an argument?

Posted on 02 Oct 2015 under Random

One thing I’ve always wondered about is what’s the point of an argument / debate?

Honestly, when was the last time you met someone whose made-up mind was changed as a result of discussion / debate / argument with someone else? I’ve rarely, if ever, seen it happen. Most of the times, the argument either peters out or all arguing parties reach a point at which you’re willing to compromise a bit and reach some kind of settlement because you’ve lost the will to continue arguing about something. Either that, or you step away from the conversation without conceding anything and without having changed your mind, just because it’s pointless to continue arguing.
