Usually an author uses the rhetorical system when countering a reason or stands....   [tags: ethos, logos, credibility]

Evaluating Ethos Through Technology

- ... Aristotle names intelligence, character, and goodwill as the attributes that produce credibility (Rottenberg & Winchell, 2012, p.4). These factors are what create ethos. However, these attributes can become very difficult to evaluate when the physical presence of a person has been replaced with audio and virtual videos posted online. Believability and trustworthiness is much easier to earn when the author conveys a message in front of his or her audience.

The Lack of Credibility in Homer's Iliad

-     Much of the criticism of Homer's Iliad is focused on the events of the story: the significance of the images, symbols, the role of the Greek Gods, the characters of the story.

He is the medium through which the story is told.  Perhaps the ambiguity of not knowing exactly who Homer is, and the fact that it was an oral story long before it was written in the form it is today, is the cause of oversight of the narrative qualities of Homer's Iliad by many critics....   [tags: Iliad essays]
