Excellent pathos example! Do you think that most audience members would think that ADHD is something that should be cured, treated, etc.? Could there be anyone who believes it should not be treated? Who? Does theCDC website appeal to that aspect of a general audience or at least present a neutral stance that would not offend them? How do you know?Believe it or not we are confronted with ethos, pathos, and logos (our paper 1's required vocabulary) every day, whether it is immediately apparent or not. One place where the rhetoricalappeals seem most obvious is in commercials. Watch this commercial about the SPCA . It relies heavily on one of the rhetorical appeals. Which one, ethos, pathos, or logos, would you say is most prominent in this commercial?
