Review of Logos

Using logos means reasoning with your audience, providing them with facts and statistics, or making historical and literal connections:

  • “The data is perfectly clear: “
  • “Ladies and gentlemen of the jury: we have not only the fingerprints, the lack of an alibi, a clear motive, and an expressed desire to commit the robbery… We also have video of the suspect breaking in. The case could not be more open and shut.”
  • “It’s a matter of common sense …”
  • “More than one hundred peer-reviewed studies…”
  • “History has shown…”
  • “The algorithms have been run in a thousand different ways, and the math continues to check out.”
  • “Research has shown…”
  • “Doctors all over the world recommend this type of treatment.”
