Christina Oliva August 29, 2016 Aristotle is considered the father of rhetoric. Rhetoric by Aristotle eloquently lays out the groundwork for what is known today as an influential way to argue, give speeches, or even  persuade people with media and marketing. The basics of rhetoric and the three ways in which  the presenter can appeal to an audience are outlined in Book 1 while also advising on how to  leave the best impression with your audience using rhetoric. Rhetoric was not a skill left with the ancient philosophers, but is something that has stood the test of time and proven significantly  important in today’s world. Not only did the importance and use of rhetoric travel through Roman emperors like  Cicero and Quintilian, but also it comes all the way to the 21  century to platforms like social  media marketing, political speeches, and medical debates on controversial topics. For example,  the use of rhetoric is repeatedly used when feminist groups attempt to appeal to women over the  gender inequality they believe is still prevalent. That would be using the ethos branch of rhetoric  in today’s media. To this day, there is vast writers that still bless the works of Aristotle for his  writings on rhetoric and look into it to learn more for more effective ways to communicate and  be persuasive. Another example, is when politicians attempt to use logos based rhetoric for their  debates and platforms but are often incorrect when the do so. Aristotle said that to do that the  factual based point must be evidence based and absolutely irrefutable. Too many politicians  cannot fulfill that criteria so once they are either caught in that black hole of misinformation, or  find it easier to get a rise out of the audience, they will often fall back to ethos rhetoric. While  current politicians use rhetoric in everything they do, from important and influential brief  conversations to grand speeches there are many that would agree if they spent the time reading  over Aristotle’s Rhetoric they could very much benefit. The world today is all about influencing audiences. Whether it be to buy a product, to  support a candidate, or to believe a person is a good man there are nearly limitless reasons and  ways rhetoric comes into play still thousands of years after Aristotle wrote his book on it. One of the most incredible things about the topic and concept as a whole, is no one since Aristotle has  taken the credit away from him and all have given him due respects for his work and being the  father of rhetoric and the vast influences he has had because of that over the years since that  book came to be.
