COMM­130: Essentials of Public Speaking Ch.3 Lecture Notes ­Ch.3 is about ethics and communication its mainly about Ethos. ­On a daily basis we are faced with dilemmas, a lot of everyday ethical dilemmas, ex:  dropping $$$, make the right decision and do what’s most ethical. ­Rules and values that a group defines to distinguish conduct what’s right and what’s  wrong. ­Deontological: the daily idea of how we approach ethics, the Right or Wrong of what you think, would you help someone for your own reasons, ex: burning building save your  mom. ­Teleological: we need to do the greatest amount of good for the greatest amount of  people, ex: burning building save the 4 other people based on situation. ex: woman is a special class to save because they create life and children because they are  supposed as innocent. ­This dictates peoples code of ethics. ­Ethical Absolutism: be ethical regardless of what you are or the situation, ex: telling the  truth regardless of consequences. ­Situational Ethics: you make the most desirable decision even if you have to bend the  truth for what you think is right (most people are both). ­ Love overcomes Religion. ­Ethics in themselves are cultural meanings. ­When it comes to actuality doing your speeches always be honest, you can tell by your  audience’s facial expressions, think about cultural context and who you are speaking  to never disrespect a culture because you will no longer be listened to and trusted,  this may affect the perception of Ethos. ­Lying: deceiving an audience will result in losing the audience and their trust, DON’T  LIE. ­Half­truth’s: reveals part of a truth is still seen as a lie, its often seen as worse than a lie. ­Taking Evidence Out of Context: Don't Do, mainly happens when you jump into context. ­When supporting an argument have solid evidence. ­Dishonest/Omitting: Silence about a topic, not including a major topic from your speech. ­You must Quote your source especially in your speech, also include Authors name, Job  title, and Article it is coming from, has to be in your Bibliography and Work Cited Page so it doesn't look subject to Plagiarism, catch all praises from historical pieces don't  need to be cited unless you go into major detail. ­Murfies Law: be prepared for shit to happen. ­Think about who is your audience and think about what they already know and what’s  the contexts. ­Being Ethical by Ethos of the reasoning. ­Fallacious Reasoning: is the in between of a claim and a warrant. ­An Argument: has a claim and warrant both make an argument. ­Ad Hominem Fallacy: is making arguments about what the person is saying, not an  argument about the person (A.K.A.  Ad Hom). ­Hasty Generalization Fallacy: arguments that seem to go to the observed ex: a new  female student from Africa starts school and the teachers assumes it’s the African  American girl dressed unconventionally when in reality it’s the white girl. ­Post Hoc Fallacy: X happened after Y, therefore Y caused X to happen, not providing a  lot of evidence for why this reason is true (Have enough evidence to back your  reason or topic up). Band­Wagan Fallacy: Just because everyone else is doing it means it’s a good thing  when in reality it isn’t.
