Option 3: Essay on the Role of Pathos in Counterargument

Write a 3-4 page, double-spaced essay that explains to your classmates why sticking to the “facts” alone will be an ineffective rhetorical strategy when countering pathological texts (as we’ve defined them).

You’ll need to explain your understanding of the relation between reason and emotions, facts and feelings, and cite at least 2 sources we’ve read in the class, documenting these sources in a Works Cited Page.
