“The Light of Egypt” will be found to be an Occult library in itself, a textbook of esoteric knowledge, setting forth the “wisdom Religion” of life, as taught by the Adepts of Hermetic Philosophy. It will richly repay all who are seeking the higher life to carefully study this book, as it contains in a nutshell the wisdom of the ages regarding man and his destiny, here and hereafter. The London and American first edition, also the French edition, Vol. I, met with lively criticism from Blavatsky Theosophists, because it annihilates that agreeable delusion of “Karma” and “Reincarnation” from the minds of all lovers of truth for truth’s sake.

“The Tablets of Aeth” is a great and mighty work, as it contains the very quintessence of Occult and Hermetic philosophy, as revealed by spiritual law. “Penetralia” is a new revelation, and invaluable to Occult students, as it is the personal experience of a developed soul.

1 An Introduction to Rhetorical Appeals
Logos, Pathos, & Ethos: An Introduction to Rhetorical Appeals

2 Background Information
Rhetoric is the use of words for a specific purpose, often to persuade an audience.According to Aristotle, there are three main strategies employed when appealing to an audience: logos, ethos, and pathos.

3 Logos – An Appeal to Logic
“Logos (Greek for ‘word’) refers to the internal consistency of the message—the clarity of the claim, the logic of its reasons, and the effectiveness of its supporting evidence. The impact of logos on an audience is sometimes called the argument’s logical appeal” (Ramage).

4 Logos – An Appeal to Logic
An appeal to logos can be created through the use of logic based on irrefutable facts, verifiable numbers, and the inexorable march of reason across the course of a well-constructed speech, the pages of a critical paper, or the surfaces of compelling advertisements.When hunting for or seeking to employ logos, consider: facts as evidence, research/ statistics,quoted authorities, cause and effect, analogies and comparisons,common sense/shared values, and precedent. How is this ad an example of a visual metaphor?

5 Pathos – An Appeal to Emotion
“Pathos (Greek for ‘suffering’ or ‘experience’) is often associated with emotional appeal. But a better equivalent might be ‘appeal to the audience’s sympathies and imagination.’ An appeal to pathos causes an audience not just to respond emotionally but to identify with the writer’s point of view—to feel what the writer feels….Pathos refers to both the emotional and the imaginative impact of the message on an audience, the power with which the writer’s message moves the audience to decision or action” (Ramage).

6 Pathos – An Appeal to Emotion
An appeal based on pathos is targeted at the realm of emotion. It’s why campaigns try to wrap themselves in a national flag and maneuver to make you fear “the other”. It’s why a winning smile and puppy-dog eyes work magic in cementing an advertisement’s main message in the minds of viewers. It’s why words aimed at the heart strings often strike a chord within even the most savvy and skeptical readers.When pinpointing or seeking to utilize pathos, consider:

connotative diction, imagery, or figurative language,anecdotes, examples, images that evoke an emotional response, and carefully crafted syntax (sentence patterns).How is this ad working on the pathos level?

7 Ethos – An Appeal to Ethics
“Ethos (Greek for ‘character’) refers to the trustworthiness or credibility of the writer or speaker. Ethos is often conveyed through tone and style of the message and through the way the writer or speaker refers to differing views. It can also be affected by the writer’s reputation as it exists independently from the message—his or her expertise in the field, his or her previous record or integrity, and so forth. The impact of ethos is often called the argument’s ‘ethical appeal’ or the ‘appeal from credibility’” (Ramage).The Speaker

8 Ethos – An Appeal to Ethics
An appeal based on ethos centers on the ethical character of the speaker and their sources of information. Quite simply, it matters who’s trying to persuade you and whom they reference for support. If the person trying to sway an audience demonstrates “commonsense, virtue, and goodwill,” then the listeners will be more likely to believe what that person states. If an advertisement cites a reputable institution’s statistics, the claim of the ad becomes more plausible.When seeking or straining to implement ethos, consider: the stating of qualifications for expertise, citing relevant authorities and allusions, making qualified claims (perhaps,sometimes, etc.), and restating opposing views accurately and fairly.How does this image extend beyond mere celebrity endorsement to include ethos?

(16 February 1854 – 1 March 1934)

Charles Webster Leadbeater was an influential member of the Theosophical Society, author on occult subjects and co-initiator with J. I. Wedgwood of the Liberal Catholic Church. Originally a priest of the Church of England, his interest in spiritualism caused him to end his affiliation with Anglicanism in favour of the Theosophical Society, where he became an associate of Annie Besant.

He became a high-ranking officer of the society, but resigned in 1906 amid a scandal. Accusations of his detractors were never proven and, with Besant’s assistance, he was readmitted a few years later. Leadbeater went on to write over 69 books and pamphlets that examined in detail the hidden side of life as well as maintain regular speaking engagements. His efforts on behalf of the society assured his status as one of its leading members until his death in 1934.
