Review Pathos • Pathos: Pathos is related to the words pathetic, sympathy and empathy. • Those who wish to persuade you will play with your emotions. They may persuade you with fear, love, patriotism, guilt, hate or joy. • A majority of arguments in the popular press are heavily dependent on appealing to your emotions. We, as a society, should not react to emotional arguments without fully considering all of the facts. • Appeals to pathos touch a nerve and compel people to not only listen, but to also take the next step and act in the world.
