From the Merriam-Webster online dictionary, rhetoric is defined as “the art of speaking or writing effectively.” This is, although, a very broad definition. In Aristotle’s Rhetoric, he gives great detail to the criteria of effective Rhetoric. In book 1, chapter 2, Aristotle elaborates on logos, pathos, and ethos. He calls them the “three means of effective persuasion.” Logos means to “reason logically.” Ethos: to “be able to understand human character and goodness in their various forms,” and pathos: “to understand the emotions that is, to name them and describe them, to know their causes and the way in which they are excited.” Using this criteria that Aristotle gives, movies and movie speeches can be evaluated by how persuasive and thought provoking they are.

Rhetorical Appeals – Ethos, Logos, Pathos • ‘The art of speaking not merely with propriety but with art and elegance.’ Dr Samuel Johnson • Rhetoric is defined as: “The art of using language so as to persuade or influence others; the body of rules to be observed by a speaker or writer in order to achieve effective of eloquent expression.” (New Shorter Oxford Dictionary) Ethos: The Writer’s Character or Credibility Ethos (Greek for ‘character’) refers to the trustworthiness or credibility of the writer or speaker. The Greek word ethos is related to our word ethics or ethical, but a more accurate modern translation might be “image” or “character” or credibility. Aristotle uses ethos to refer to the speaker’s character as it appears to the audience.

Today we might add that a speaker should also appear to have the appropriate expertise or authority to speak knowledgeably about the subject matter.

He is a very well known philosopher and in this book he gives his philosophy of the best way to proceed in life.
