In The Plague of Fantasies, Slavoj Žižek describes Lacan's readings of classical, literary, and philosophical texts as "a case of violent appropriation…displacing the work from its proper hermeneutic context." And yet, he argues, "this very violent gesture brings about a breathtaking 'effect of truth'" and "a shattering new insight."

ETHOS/ PATHOS/ LOGOS The Sense and Place of Persuasiveness in Linguistic, Literary and Philosophical Discourse

updated: 
Saturday, November 19, 2011 - 8:05am
University of Ploiesti

In his Rhetoric, Aristotle defined the act of persuasion as the interaction between three elements: ethos (Greek for 'character', which designated the image of the self built by the orator to inspire trustworthiness and credibility), pathos (the arousing of emotions in one's audience), and logos (referring both to discourse and reason). While these notions have remained conceptual cornerstones in major intellectual endeavours of western thought, ethos in particular developed in a distinctly different direction (from the individual to the collective or national) in the nineteenth century, from Hegel's understanding of the German word for 'ethics', Sittlichkeit, as what binds the members of a community to a place.
