In brief: Support and insight
Talk to him how his argument is affecting social and interpersonal life.
Be supportive of his positive qualities and encourage him to see either therapist or psychiatrist. This may be due to maladaptive personality or underlying mental illness.

In brief: Arguing
This person needs professional help, but it is not easy to convince the person that they need help.
Try talking to the person about how the arguing is affecting those around him and ask if he would get help. Leave books about getting psychological help around the house so he might read them. If he has a religion perhaps you could talk to someone in his church about help.

In brief: Intervention.
The "we" in that question is probably the most important word.
If there are a bunch of people who want to help this compulsive arguer, you should stage an intervention wherein you all meet with the person, nicely of course, and express your concerns and willingness to help and understand. There's probably a root to all that anger that the bunch of you could hopefully uncover and address.
