Decent Essays
Throughout the text, all three appeals stand out at various points; some more than others. Shown least amount of times, the ethical appeal contributes to the text during the last part of the book.

Within 35 years of his publication, he has reassurance that he’s close to the cure. Sadly, he passed away in 2008, due to a heart attack.
