Just remember though that rhetoric is the art of persuasion. It does not necessarily mean that you let the person be right. The original concept was developed in like 80 BCE when the Romans had to legally go to court to get stuff back from a war they had fought.
However the Socratic Method you give almost makes a person seem like a pushover if they let the other party win. Just my thought on it.
