What is the difference between ethics and ethos?

"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.'"

Is intrinsic ethos and logos essentially the same thing?

No, but the distinction is something like the difference between "all fish live in water" and "everything that lives in water is a fish."

Ethos relies on the credibility of the person making the argument. His or her reputation, charisma, education and other personal qualities factor into how likely we are to believe what the person is saying. Intrinsic ethos is credibility that comes from the way an argument is presented. For example, an essay may seem credible because the writing is authoritative.

Logos refers to the argument itself and the specific reasons or premises used to support a position. Aristotle conceived it as an appeal to logic.

A good argument that appeals to the sense of logos typically also has intrinsic ethos. On the other hand, an argument may have intrinsic ethos, or superficial credibility, even if the logos is based on unsubstantiated beliefs, poor reasoning and successful appeals to pathos (emotion). This is the heart of most political rhetoric.

How does organisational values and norms influence work ethos?

Most organised religions have required ethical behaviours.

If you have not seen it there is an excellent example of this in a poster on the "Golden Rule". (see the link below) I found myself looking at this poster while in a local hospital and marveling in the fact someone had taken the time to compile examples of the similarities in 13 major faith systems. So many people these days spend their time and energies looking for the differences. But I digress...

Some but not all of the major organised religions and not a few of the lesser known ones preach that the "rules" or ethics are more importantly applied to those of their own faith. This is not so for many others.

Unfortunately too many people these days take it upon themselves to exclude all others from their ethical practices.

As the trend moves to separate church and state, less and less of the old ethics remain. We must rely now on the moral fiber of those making our laws and heading our businesses.

How does ethos make a paper better?

Imagine if a corrupt king tried to tell you about the secrets of effective leadership, or a bully tried to persuade you of the benefits of goodwill. You wouldn't believe them, would you? Why not? Because they are not fit to argue their positions.

When you're writing a paper, it's important that you establish credibility so that your audience understands that you know what you're talking about. You can do this through facts/statistics (which prove that you've done your research), concessions (which prove that you are unbiased and have considered opposing arguments), interviews (which prove that you are not the only one who supports your position), or any other device that demonstrates your dependability.

It's quite simple. When you trust someone, you are more likely to believe what they say. This is why incorporating ethos into a paper is paramount.

Hope that helps...
