The book Ethos & Pathos - virtue and strength of human expression considers the effort of the individual to communicate. Rhetoric, physiognomy, ethics, psychology, physical training and political marketing are means used to reach this objective. The writer, with her distinct personal style, accomplishes to exhibit, with a pleasing and vivid way, a difficult academic subject.
From the beginning until the end, no matter the direction chosen – past to present or vice versa – it is registered a constant search by individuals for the best way to interrelate with each other, passing their message with success and without being taken for a ride. Some have proposed the forbidding of untruth among men but fall into unrealistic rules; others have positioned truth out of the reach of men without the support of God; others did not find truth important if the system's stability is to be endangered; some have removed emotions and passions of the body out in order to reasonably find reality true; others found these the key to true natural existence and proposed the clash of the system; others have affirmed that reality is inside each man and, for that reason, truth is multiple and unreachable as long as the individual does not find the balance between mind, emotions and body.
