The Rhetorical Triangle

Every communication is essentially a triangular relationship.  Each point of the triangle

influences the others, and all are influenced by the context of the communication.  Each point

of the triangle bears some responsibility for the success of the communication, and each

point of the triangle corresponds with one of Aristotle's three appeals:  the three general ways we persuade others.
