How to get what you want using words

In Treatise on Rhetoric, Aristotle set to figure out how to use rhetoric to persuade someone.

According to Aristotle, there are three types of persuasive speech.

  1. Forensic, or judicial rhetoric. It establishes facts and judgements about the past.
  2. Epideictic, or demonstrative, rhetoric. Proclamation about the present situation, like wedding speeches.
  3. Deliberative rhetoric or symbouleutikon. It encourages change by talking about a possible future. For example, Martin Luther King Jr's dream was that the nation won't be judged by the colour of their skin.

Good deliverable rhetoric

Aristotle describes three persuasive appeals:

  1. Ethos. How you convince and audience of your credibility.
  2. Logos is logic and reason using rhetorical devices such as analogies, examples, and citations of research. Structure and content are also important.
  3. Pathos is neither good nor bad but may be irrational and unpredictable, such as advertising. For example, beauty products promise to lessen our physical insecurities; Cars make us feel powerful.

Knowing which rhetorical appeal to use depends on your audience and purpose.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
