Appeal to Emotions

  • Appeal to Consequences of a Belief – Arguing a belief is false because it implies something you’d rather not believe.
  • Appeal to Fear – An argument is made by increasing fear and prejudice towards the positing side.
  • Appeal to Flattery – Using an irrelevant compliment to slip in an unfounded claim which is accepted along with the compliment.
  • Appeal to Nature – Making your claim seem more true by drawing a comparison with the “good” natural world.
  • Appeal to Pity – Attempt to induce to sway opponents.
  • Appeal to Ridicule – Presenting the opponents argument in a way that makes it appear absurd.
  • Appeal to Spite – Dismissing a claim by appealing to personal bias against the claimant.
