Ethos Examples

Ethos is one of the three rhetorical appeals of persuasion, also known as Aristotle's three artistic proofs, and is used as a component of argument to persuade others to take a particular point of view. Aristotle claimed that one needs to appear both knowledgeable about one's subject and benevolent. As a result, ethos refers to the trustworthiness or credibility of the writer or speaker.

Ethos is often conveyed through tone and style of the message and through the way the writer or speaker refers to differing views. It can also be affected by the writer's reputation as it exists independently from the message-- his or her expertise in the field, his or her previous record or integrity, and so forth. The impact of ethos is often called the argument's 'ethical appeal' or the 'appeal from credibility.' For example, "As a doctor, I am qualified to tell you that this course of treatment will likely generate the best results." However, some contend that a speaker's ethos extends to and is shaped by the overall moral character and history of the speaker-- that is, what people think of his or her character, for instance; "He is a forensics and ballistics expert for the federal government - if anyone's qualified to determine the murder weapon, it's him." All in all, ethos does not belong to the speaker but to the audience. Thus, it is the audience that determines whether a speaker is a high-ethos or a low-ethos speaker.
Ethos Meaning
Aristotle's "ingredients for persuasion" otherwise known as "appeals" are known by the names of ethos, pathos, and logos. They are all means of persuading others to take a particular point of view. Ethos is an appeal to ethics, and it is a means of convincing someone of the character or credibility of the persuader.
