Forum Objective: Analyze ethos, logos and pathos in a persuasive article from your field.
When a persuasive argument has ethos (credibility), pathos (emotional appeal/hook), and logos (appeal to logic, credible research, thesis and supporting paragraphs), then you have a valid persuasive argument with no fallacies (illogical arguments). It is when an argument lacks ethos (credibility) or lacks logos (credible evidence/research) that you have a fallacy (illogical argument). As long as a persuasive argument has all three appeals (ethos, pathos and logos), then you know you can believe in that persuasive argument. The objective of this forum is for students to recognize a valid argument from an invalid argument (fallacy). This is a very important critical thinking skill–to be able to tell fact from fiction, fact from fake news, fact from propaganda. Never trust a statement with only pathos and no logos and ethos. To learn how to recognize a valid persuasive argument, you need to learn how to analyze ethos, pathos and logos in persuasive writing. For this forum assignment, find a persuasive piece of writing and analyze its ethos, pathos and logos.
