 (de)construct - pathos   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
"Pathos in greek meant the passions, or suffering, or deep feeling generally, as distinguished from ethos, a person's overall disposition or character.
In modern criticism, however, pathos, in a more limited sense, is attributed to a scene or passage that is designed to evoke the feelings of tenderness, pity, or sympathetic sorrow from the audience.
I have extended this definition to include the evocation of any emotion in the audience as a part of pathos, since the definitions of pathos that I have encountered so far seem to ignore anything beyond "tenderness, pity, or sympathetic sorrow".

 CGB: Pathos of Distance   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-06)
The term "pathos of distance" appears early in Nietzsche's *Genealogy of Morals*, in response to the interpretation of morality which is grounded in utility, that is, one which is based upon the notion that what was "good" was "good for someone," and that someone must have been responsible for designating such actions as good.
Rather it was the "good" themselves, that is to say the noble, mighty, highly placed, and high-minded who decreed themselves and their actions to be good, i.e., belonging to the highest rank, in contradistinction to all that was base, low-minded and plebeian.
By linking that distance up with pathos, Nietzsche appears to be suggesting that while we (now) can only understand noble morality in terms of its opposites, there was an initial act of affirmation which established such pathos.

 Gnosticism [Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy]
The Gnostic Idea or Notion was not informed by a philosophical world-view or procedure; rather, the Gnostic vision of the world was based upon the intuition of a radical and seemingly irreparable rupture between the realm of experience (pathos) and the realm of true Being, i.e., existence in its positive, creative, or authentic aspect.
The myth is always an explanation of something already known, and therefore carries its truth-claim along with it, just as the immediacy of an event forbids any doubt or questioning on the part of the one undergoing it.
The direct result of this gnôsis is the emergence from the sense of existence as pathos, to the actuality of being as aisthêsis -- that is, reception and judgment of experience by way of purely rational or divine criteria.

On 29 May a court of thirty-seven judges decided unanimously that the Maid must be treated as a relapsed heretic, and this sentence was actually carried out the next day (30 May, 1431) amid circumstances of intense pathos.
She is said, when the judges visited her early in the morning, first to have charged Cauchon with the responsibility of her death, solemnly appealing from him to God, and afterwards to have declared that "her voices had deceived her." About this last speech a doubt must always be felt.
