What are Aristotle's appeals, and how do they apply to essay writing?
Aristotle's appeals are methods of persuasion, used to convince an audience of an argument. The three appeals are known by the Greek words "ethos," "pathos," and "logos," and were developed by the Greek philosopher Aristotle. Ethos translates to "ethics." This appeal is used to convince an audience of the author's trustworthiness. If an audience believes the author is trustworthy, they're more likely to accept their argument. Pathos is an appeal to the emotions. Readers are more apt to align themselves and their opinions with someone they can identify with. Pathos can be an appeal to either positive or negative emotions. Logos appeals to logic and reason. It can be accomplished by the inclusion of information such as quantifiable data, surveys, historical data, and testimonials. A strongly persuasive essay incorporates all three appeals.

When filtering articles in a database search, what term would you select to eliminate results that only contain abstracts?
What musical style influenced the "Beat" genre of writing, and how did that influence manifest in the work?
Jazz was the predominant musical influence in Beat writing. Jack Kerouac developed a style of writing eventually known as "spontaneous bop prosody" which sought to mimic the free-form, improvisational style of Jazz. Kerouac typed his second novel "On the Road," on one long scroll of paper so the writing would be uninterrupted by changing paper.
