Rome was established in 753 B.C. For 200 years ruled by Tarquin kings who were tyrants The Tarquins were overthrown by Lucius Junius Brutus in 510 B.C. an ancestor of Brutus in the play. A democratic republic was then established which lasted until the death of Julius Caesar. The Romans were very proud of their democratic system and were repulsed by the thought of being ruled by a king.
Julius Caesar Gaius Julius Caesar was born in 100 B.C. He gained power and wealth due to a series of successful campaigns in which he conquered what is now Britain, France, much of central and eastern Europe, and parts of North Africa. What Did Caesar Do for Rome?
He built roads. He developed irrigation systems. He financed public parks and buildings. He even made changes to the calendar. Indeed, he was well liked and very powerful.
What Got Caesar into Trouble? It appears he was much more interested in things other than military conquest. After a series of civil wars that lasted until 48 B.C., Caesar declared himself Romes dictator for life. Many people believed that Caesar wanted more than just power; he wanted a powerful title. What Got Caesar into Trouble?
(Continued) Many Romans assumed that Caesar was ready to declare himself King of Rome and eliminate the five hundred year old republic of which the Romans were so proud. Remember the Tarquins, the tyrant kings who ruled over Rome for 243 years? There was no way Romans were going to return to that style of government. Someone had to put a stop to this pursuit of absolute power, and so enter the conspirators. ...Beware the Ides of March!
Play Versus The History Therefore, there is much historically accurate information, but a story to entertain the audience must also unfold. Yes! There is much to learn from the works of William Shakespeare. As we study this play, remember Shakespeare wished not only to inform his audience about the history of Julius Caesar but also to entertain them.
Caesar Assignment 15 events that precede and proceed Caesars murder. Caesar- dictator of Rome Calpurnia-Caesars wife Cassius- antagonist, jealous of Caesars power and convinces Brutus to commit murder Brutus- Caesars murderer, believes that he is doing good, logos Antony- like Caesars son, convince the general public to go after Brutus and Cassius, pathos
Logical Fallacies How people try to use logic to confuse and trick you! Logical Fallacies are considered propaganda. Propaganda is the manipulation and control of language. It transmits more than one message, depending on what the recipient wishes to hear or is told to hear. Some required elements for propaganda: Supporters: The masses must be behind the leader and feel that
his or her new ideas will make a real difference in their lives. Ignorance of followers: Its important that the followers and supporters of the leader not be too educated. They must follow blindly and without question. Scapegoat: There must be someone or something to blame for all of the bad conditions the leader wants to eradicate. Usually, it is the leadership in current power. Later, any problems which arise can be blamed on the scapegoat. COMMON LOGICAL FALLACIES 1. Hasty Generalization: The writer bases the argument on
insufficient or unrepresentative evidence, or an isolated example. Example: You have owned two poodles, and they have both attacked you. If you declare that all poodles are vicious dogs, you are making a hasty generalization. Example: My opponent seems to be an inconsiderate person. Does the speaker offer examples or evidence to support this claim? 2. Non Sequitur (it doesnt follow): The writers conclusion is not necessarily a logical result of the facts. Example: When you conclude Tony Hawk is a great skateboarder, so he will be an excellent skateboard teacher
this is a non sequitur. Just because someone knows how to do something well does not automatically mean that he or she can teach it well. COMMON LOGICAL FALLACIES 3. Begging the Question (also known as circular reasoning): The writer presents as truth what is supposed to be proven by the argument (assumes point is already accepted as a fact) . Example: In the statement All useless laws such as Reform Bill 13 should be repealed, the writer has already
pronounced the bill useless without assuming responsibility for proving that it is useless. 4. Red Herring: The writer introduces an irrelevant point to divert the readers attention from the main issue. This term originates from the old tactic used by escaped prisoners, of dragging a smoked herring, a strong-smelling fish, across their trail to confuse tracking dogs by making them follow the wrong scent. Example: Roommate A might be criticizing roommate B for his or her repeated failure to do the dishes when it was his or her turn. To escape facing the charges, roommate B brings up times in the past when roommate A failed to repay some
money he or she borrowed. Even though this could be a problem, it is not relevant to the original argument. COMMON LOGICAL FALLACIES 5. Argument Ad Hominem (To the man): The writer attacks the opponents character rather than the opponents argument. Example: The statement Dr. Bloom cant be a competent marriage counselor because shes been divorced may not be valid. Blooms advice to her clients may be excellent regardless of her own marital status. Example: calling members of the National Rifle Association trigger happy, drawing attention away from their concerns about the Second
Amendment Rights. 6. Argument Ad Populum (To the people): The writer evades the issues by appealing to readers emotional reactions to certain subjects. Instead of arguing the facts of an issue, the writer might play on the readers responses to certain ideas or words. The writer uses words such as communism, fascism, or radical to get a negative response from a reader and use words such as God, country, or liberty to get a positive response from a reader. The idea being to compliment people, making them feel important , intelligent or good. Example: If you are a true American, you will vote against the referendum on flag burning, is a statement where the writer avoids
discussion of the merits or weaknesses of the bill and merely substitutes an emotional appeal. COMMON LOGICAL FALLACIES 7. Either/or: The writer tries to convince the readers that there are only two sides to an issue one right, one wrong. Example: The classic 1960s bumper sticker that was popular during the debate over the Vietnam War is an example of this: America: Love It or Leave It. Obviously, there are other choices.
8. Hypostatization: The writer uses an abstract concept as if it were a concrete reality. Example: History has always taught us . . . or Science has proven . . . or Research has discovered . . . . The implication in each case is that history or science (or any other discipline) has only one opinion which is an incorrect assumption. COMMON LOGICAL FALLACIES 9. Bandwagon Appeal: The writer tries to validate a point by intimating that everyone else believes in this. Such a tactic evades discussion
of the issue itself. Example: Advertising often uses this technique: Discriminating women use Smacky-Mouth lipstick. A recent Colorado bumper sticker says Eat lamb could 1000s of coyotes be wrong? Example: Join the rest of the nation in our goal to keep America great, and vote for me. Does joining everyone make it a good idea? 10. Card Stacking: This term comes from stacking a deck of cards in your favor. Card stacking is used to slant a message. Key words or unfavorable statistics may be omitted in an ad or commercial, leading to a series of half-truths.
Example: I introduced more bills into Congress than anyone else. How successful were the bills? How many passed? The speaker might leave out failures. COMMON LOGICAL FALLACIES 11. Faulty Analogy: The writer uses an extended comparison as proof of a point. Look closely at all extended comparisons and metaphors to see if the two things being compared are really similar. Although a compelling analogy might suggest similarities, it alone cannot prove anything. Example: In a recent editorial a woman bemoaned laws
requiring small children to sit in car seats saying that lawmakers could just as easily require mothers to breastfeed instead of using formula. Are the two situations really alike? 12. Quick Fix: The writer leans too heavily on catchy phrases or empty slogans. A clever turn-of-phrase may grab ones attention, but it may lose its persuasiveness when scrutinized closely. Example: A banner at a recent rally to protest a piece of antigun legislation read, When guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns. Although the sentence had nice balance, it oversimplified the issue.
COMMON LOGICAL FALLACIES 13. Faulty Cause / Effect: A cause and effect relationship that might not be true. Example: When I took office, the unemployment rate dropped to four percent. Listeners should question whether the rate dropped because of the person in office or other factors beyond the persons control. Did that person actually cause the rate to drop? 10 propaganda techniques to catch on the fly
look for these elements in advertisements! 1. Repetition: Repeat, repeat, repeat 2. Nostalgia: Forget the bad parts of the past; only remember the good. 3. Beautiful People: Use goodlooking models in ads to suggest that well look like the models if we buy the product. 4. Bandwagon: Everybody is doing it! 5. Scientific Evidence: Use the paraphernalia of science (charts,
graphs, etc.) to prove something. 6. Maybe: Exaggerated or outrageous claims are commonly preceded by maybe, might, or could. 7. Symbols: Designs, places, music, etc. , symbolizing tradition, nationalism, power, religion, sex, family, or any concept with emotional concept.
8. Testimonials: Use famous people to sell a product (voice-overs). 9. Humor: Make them laugh to persuade. 10. Name-calling: Direct or Indirect, audiences love it. What is the motive behind the appeal? Why do we fall for the appeal? 1. Self-preservation: desire to survive, need of food, clothing, shelter,
oxygen, and rest. Security and safety free from worries. 2. Pride: feeling of personal worth and accomplishment. Work hard, build morale and win approval. 3. Personal Enjoyment: desire for beauty, comfort, and recreation. 4. Love and Affection: need to give and receive love, to have friends, close family ties, to promote common good.
5. Acquisition and Saving: appeal to the pocketbook, to a desire for ownership. 6. Adventure and Curiosity: need for exploration, reading, watching, daydreaming. 7. Loyalty: faithfulness to nation (patriotism), school (school spirit), city and friends and family. 8. Imitation: need to conform with
dress, hair styles, slang, actions, motivated by imitation of hero or movie star. 9. Reverence: desire to look up to someone; hero worship, tradition, worship or supreme being. 10. Creating: urge to invent, build, make, plant, paint, organize, etc. Generals Speech (107-108) 1.1 example of ethos, logos, pathos (quote with
short explanation) from Jabatis speech 2.Three connections: Caesar connected to ALWG: Ex. Oh pardon me, thou bleeding piece of earth, That I am meek and gentle with these = butchers. (Caesar) I am sorry to show you these gruesome bodies, especially with your children present. But then again, all of us here have seen death or even shaken hands with it. (ALWG) Both men are showing their audience the bloody corpses of the victims of the enemy.
