The modes of persuasion have long been used by public speakers to effectively deliver a speech. The TED talk “Asia’s Rise -- how and when” by Hans Rosling is no exception to this and Rosling utilizes ethos, pathos and logos in a compelling manner that draws in the attention of the audience. In this TED talk Rosling indicates that after many years of Asia being dominated by the western world, Asia will regain the power it once had in the world. Statistics is used as a visual aide and they show how India and China compares with UK and USA in the last 200 years. Using past statistics to develop a trend, a prediction is made as to when Asia will overtake the Western World.
In his novel The Chosen Chaim Potok uses vision as a motif to show the reader that someone’s perception of things can change. In the novel, vision symbolizes the ability to see the world. The importance of perception is shown throughout the book. One of the main examples of this is after Reuven leaves the hospital. He says that “everything looks different”, but he doesn't mean this literally.
God creates human with vision awareness that enable them to perceive their surroundings and with the addition to the mixture of color to the surroundings, it brings more meaning to their observation. Color perception has a unique ability to perceive and recognize the presence of objects that enables human to distinguish the objects in their surrounding through its shades that permitted them to view the size, shape, outline and the figure of the objects.

Brain game season 3 Follow the leader. This episode shows how the brain can be fooled in many ways. The first example that was given was the six colored dots that were moving in a circle, if you focus in one color the dot seems that it is moving up and down in a straight line when in reality the dot is going in a circular motion. This illusion shows how the brain cannot take so much information at once; thus your brain makes you think that all of the color dots are going in the same circular motion.
In his article “Affirmative Action in Higher Education: Is It Necessary?” , Rodney Reed debates the necessity of affirmative action as a critical measure in the fight against discrimination in higher education. In order to stress this conviction, he does not eschew the usage of strongly biased diction and argument. Firstly, on page 333 Reed states that “in [his] view, affirmative action is a series of positive steps” and that “[his] concern is with Blacks, Hispanics, and Native Americans”, where he does not conceal that this is his perspective and not necessarily the truth.
The story is by Oliver Sacks and he discusses the story of a blind man whom has been blind for forty-five years before the doctors were able to perform a miraculous surgery on him to allow him to see again. The remarkable part of the story is that the outcome was not the storybook ending where the man can see and everything makes perfect sense to him.

This is similar to Plato’s idea in The Republic. One of the metaphors he uses is to compare eye with sight. He states that having eyes doesn’t mean seeing things.
