"Pathos" Reconsidered from the Perspective of Classical Chinese Rhetorical Theories.
Garrett, Mary M.
Quarterly Journal of Speech, v79 n1 p19-39 Feb 1993
Proposes that cross-cultural rhetorical studies may provide insights into the sources of difficulties with "pathos." Presents an extensive case study that appeals to the emotions in classical Chinese rhetorics. Notes that the presuppositions of these rhetorics highlight the contingent nature of certain fundamental assumptions of many Western rhetorics. (RS)
