By using a joke Samantha gains the crowd 's attention and they start to like her a bit more, also using words like love and respects towards others over blood and violence. Again, Samantha uses pathos towards the second Harvard debater speaking once again about how what the majority decides is moral, she quickly comes back using “we” (Washington) as in herself and the surrounding people shouldn 't have “kneel down” (Washington) to the “tranny of a majority” (Washington). She is telling the others that they have the power to do what they believe in, they should never settle for the decisions of a majority. Lastly, James Farmer Jr. is responding to the second Harvard debater as he speaks about how you cannot just pick and choose which laws you want to follow and which ones you do not. As an African-American debating at the biggest all white college, Harvard, he knows lynching is a very sensitive topic.
I might not have spoken up, but in the Public Speaking class taught by Kelly Nickel, we were asked to alert our listeners of any speech topic that might traumatize our classmates so as to give them an option as to whether to stay and listen. It was a concept which I had not thought of before, but I greatly appreciated the reason behind it. Once again, thank you
While delivering his message he used multiple approaches to talk the audience into joining his peaceful protest against the battles between nations. The first technique was logos, which attracted the people who think more logically. Next he used pathos which appealed more to the passionate side of things. His last means of persuasion were rhetorical questions. By applying these simple rhetorical devices, Einstein both got his point across in a sophisticated manner and influenced others to join his
The author skillfully uses all three forms to play on the audience’s emotions along with their logical side to cause them to be completely for the court’s final statement and decision. Although the author was required to write this because the defendant appealed the case, he did a wonderful job ensuring that any questions or comment or concerns would be answered after reading this document. Within this document this analysis educated and helped guide people in seeing the uses of rhetoric in the future and you will be less likely to be swayed by rhetorical analysis in your future
King’s words are confident and purposeful. He was very aware of the demographic who attended his speech, and for this reason, he is mindful of his wording to avoid hurting his integrity with this audience. Using pathos and logos, Dr. King was able to inspire his followers to fight for change. He pointed out how flawed America was because it did not follow the principles it was founded upon and he used pathos to emotionally inspire people to take action for the sake of their family and future. His speech was so moving that it pushed the government to finally take action on civil rights and, because of its impact, would later be the reason he was awarded a Nobel Peace
I like this chapter because it teaches readers to expose their opponent 's weak spot and use it in an argument against them As a student I concede that I did not enjoy reading this book. However I feel that it taught me some new skills that will help me in the long run. Not only did I learn some new things, but I was able to do it on my own. Discontinuing the use of “Thank You for Arguing” would take away class time that should be allotted for other things and uses it to teach rhetorical tools that could be learned over the summer by having students read
It shows that we are able to generate ideas on our own. This idea can perhaps be termed a successful meme, as the sit-ins were spread to different states in order to evoke a change. A meme is most likely to be successful if it tackles a real problem, a historical event, which requires self-sacrifice, asking us to be bigger and have the guts to actually take on a challenge. The challenge which the four college students take on is huge, which is taking on the whites by performing the sit-in. They perhaps though the time is right to bring a change as they were frustrated at being left out and being
The Crazy Iliad In life a very good skill to have is to be able to persuade people because it can help out someone in the future of their life situations. This skill is also important when going into war, and persuading people to fight or agree on something someone believes is true. In the Iliad, Homer’s characters’ use persuasion against each other multiple times in the story. The characters in the Iliad mostly use ethos, pathos, and logos when persuading each other to understand what they believe is true. In the first book, Nestor is using ethos in trying to convince Agamemnon and Achilles that they should listen to what he has to say.
While being a great tool for structuring modern society, the use of rhetoric can also be used in interpreting society. Those in society that are trained in the art of rhetoric have an abundance of influential power, so being able to comprehend when they are using rhetoric is important. Being able to determine when one is using rhetoric is helpful. Heinrichs mentions fallacies, and how "an ability to detect a fallacy helps you protect yourself" (Heinrichs 138). With the understanding of when the speaker in an argument messes up, students would be able to be safer in their arguments and much more 'protected'.
Policy conflicts normally always have a winner and a loser. According to Pearson’s "Interpersonal Communication Book," it is definitely more effective to find a win-win solution, a solution that satisfies both individuals in the party. To do so, normally both individuals have to move a step back and compromise on matters that are less important for the bigger picture, to achieve their final goal. As an example, you may have an idea in your head about the best way a presentation should be completed in class while your other group mates may also have an idea on how it should be done. To simply resolve this, both individuals can discuss with other group mates on the pro and cons of both ideas and choose the best idea among
