TED-Ed on Ethos, Pathos, Logos


As Professor Carrico pointed out, these definitions of ethos, pathos and logos may be a bit oversimplified, but I found this video an entertaining, if not helpful, interpretation/application of Aristotle's ideas. It would be interesting to try to read Joshua Bell's performances through other rhetorical frameworks as well, like the music philosophy of Schopenhauer in Will & Representation or Nietzsche in The Birth of Tragedy
