BeitragThema: Aristotle's "Five Canons of Rhetoric"   Fr Okt 09, 2009 2:06 pm

In Aristotle's "Five Canons of Rhetoric", we learn that there are five styles of rhetoric, debate and argument. They are Ethos, Logos, Pathos, Kairos and Audience. These readily apply to the struggle implied in the imagery of the 5 of Wands.

One of the young men represents fighting from or for his credibility. Ethos represents an argument or dispute based on the persuasive appeal of your own character and disposition. It requires you to be knowledgeable about your subject but at the same time to appear benevolent and authoritative. This is how personal credibility is established.

A second young man is fighting for the truth of his message. Logos is a word with many definitions in Greek, it means "oration" and it means "reason". It represents the appeal to our reason in a debate or fight. It also represents the message. Aristotle viewed this as the most important element in rhetoric.

A third youth is fighting from his emotions and his passion. Pathos represents the appeal to our emotions. Emotional arguments are often the most compelling and most viable. We will fight hardest for our emotional investments and for that we take emotional risks.

The foutrh young man represents Kairos. Kairos is the right time to fight, it is not the same as chronological time. He fights at the right place, at the right time, for the right reason and in front of the right audience.

The fifth youth gauges his fight dependent on the type of Audience his little battle has drawn. The action or interest of the Audience and how they are receiving or responding , move him forward or stop him in his tracks. He will fight to please and win the crowd.

It makes you stop and think about how your are handling yourself in an argument, dispute or fight. What are you fighting for? Are you fighting for your own personal credibility? Do you have enough knowledge and grace to win people to your point of view? Are you fighting for the truth of your message? Is your message right or good? Do you have a solid reason for fighting? Are you applying solid reason and logic or are your rationalizing? Are you fighting from your heart? Is your heart ruling your head? Have you chosen the time and place for this battle or has it been chosen for you? Is it the right time? Are you fighting for what you believe or to please and impress your audience?

Sometimes it can't hurt to think about these things before taking on the battles that life so often throws our way. All five of these aspects combined make for a successful outcome. The real struggle is to get them into balance. If balance is achieved, these 5 Wands will form a star. The way you choose to fight your battles is as important as what you are fighting for. Something worth keeping in mind.

gud blessi thig

love is devine, it is beyond emotions

yasamak bir agac gibi tek ve hür ve bir orman gibi kardescesine, bu hasret bizim.

everything, that has a beginnung and an end, is not real

j'ai douté des détails, jamais du don des nues

att jag bor, jag älskar
