Logos is the weakest rhetorical appeal that Roth uses in his argument, his message is not as strong as it could be. For example, in chapter 1 Roth does an exercise with his students making them say things that have no meaning in their life’s, with the reasoning being “Saying things aloud, even to yourself, can be very freeing” (Roth). In this quote Roth uses reasoning to help with the stress and the meaning you give things that actually mean nothing. Even though Roth doesn’t use logos as effectively as logos and paths. Roth uses logos when, “The point of the exercise is not to get the participants to change any of their relationships” (20).
He believes in no religion, feels no love, and shows no emotion. Just like he covered up his problems with alcohol, he also uses the “cover” and comfort of Catherine’s hair to escape. It’s very easy to see how Henry has focused heavily on the physical pleasures of life, especially due to his lack of feelings.

Although he makes spiritual advance with the Samanas, the Samanas have not once obtained Nirvana, which causes impatience from Siddhartha. The Samanas advocate that in order to achieve spiritual enlightenment, one must eliminate themselves and their senses. However, at this point, Siddhartha had already surpassed that and was in a dire need and has the willingness to continue to the next step beyond eliminating oneself.

He is making progress, however, but it is very subtle and unnoticeable to where it soon turns into frustration and eagerness.

Lastly these events are all horribly easy to give into, as previously stated we have only make our souls“brave enough” and it is already “ serried, seething, like a million ants” and so the simple act of giving in is as lazy as a sloth. He even alludes the the monsters of hell in the line “ among the jackals, panthers and chimerae” and the monsters of Earth “The monkeys, scorpions, vultures and other snakes” who walk among us and easily give into their sin and drag others down to their level.

Therefore, Brunton questions Maharshi how can one realize something beyond one’s self. His words came out from his lips as if he was in hurry. In contrast to Brunton, Maharshi does not make any verbal reply but seems like he is letting Brunton’s words sink into his head deeply. After that, Brunton added that scientists of the West are clever, but they “have confessed that they can throw but little light upon the hidden truth behind life” (144). He asks Maharshi to help him experience enlightenment, and questions whether the idea itself is a fake or not.

Wilde uses Algernon especially to ridicule society, at of the play he states that “divorces are made in heaven” which is ironic because by the very end of the play he proposes to a girl who he knew for ten minutes (Wilde).

Nana is given the attribute of a ruthless and lustful ruler right from the start of the play--a nocturnal expeditioner engaged in search of new woman to satisfy his lust. The Nana-Gauri encounter is the dramatisation of the fate of most of the Indian woman as merginalised subalterns whose choice or appeal is mercilessly rejected. Gauri is treated as a commodity in an explicit manner.
