Logos Pathos Ethos

There are three techniques that can be used when in an argument. It is best to use all three if you want to prove your point. The first type is logos. Logos uses reason and logic. Specific facts are used to come to a conclusion. You must use reliable evidence. It is important not to rush to a conclusion without having relevant facts. The next type is ethos. An ethos will use ethics, credibility and reliability. The opposing position is represented accurately out of respect for the reader. The argument is proofread to avoid careless mistakes. The topic is often personal to the writer. Pathos is the final type. Pathos is the emotional appeal to the audience.
