Aristotle’s three persuasive proofs

Secondly is Pathos means Emotional appeal based on the reader’s emotions. Pathos is used to persuade effectively to affect the audience’s emotional response, and emotional appeal to enhance an argument. Thirdly, Logos or (Logical) “ word,” “ speech,” “ reason”, the science dealing with the principles of valid reasoning and argument. According to Fahnestock, “ This study determines the conditions under which one is justified in passing from given statements, called premises, to a conclusion that is claimed to follow from them. Logical validity is a relationship between the premises and the conclusion such that if the premises are true then the conclusion is true.” The validity of an argument should be distinguished from the truth of the conclusion. If one or more of the premises is false, the conclusion of a valid argument may be false.
Logos or logical reasoning is the most important and Aristotle’s favorite. Since logos give the most effective and gives reasons to an argument, and it is said “ it cannot be emphasized enough without reasoning” Aristotle’s logical validity has a relationship between the premises and the conclusion such that if the premises are true then the conclusion is true. The validity of an argument should be distinguished from the truth of the conclusion. If one or more of the premises is false, the conclusion of a valid argument may be false. This appeal is incredibly important. But each of these appeals is also important in people’s daily basis and it should come into play at different times with different situations.
