dbo:abstract
  • An appeal to spite (Latin: argumentum ad odium) is a fallacy in which someone attempts to win favor for an argument by exploiting existing feelings of bitterness, spite, or schadenfreude in the opposing party. It is an attempt to sway the audience emotionally by associating a hate-figure with opposition to the speaker's argument. Fallacious ad hominem arguments which attack villains holding the opposing view are often confused with appeals to spite. The ad hominem can be a similar appeal to a negative emotion, but differs from it in directly criticizing the villain —that is unnecessary in an appeal to spite, where hatred for the villain is assumed.

  • Argumentum ad odium est une forme d'argument ou de réfutation sophistique consistant à rendre odieuse la thèse adverse en la reformulant et en la connotant de façon péjorative, sans justification apportée sur le fond. Le plus souvent, c'est par association d'idées ou d'images, plutôt que par un raisonnement, que le rapprochement est fait entre une formulation neutre et une formulation péjorative de la thèse. (fr)
  • 訴諸仇恨(英語:appeal to spite, appeal to hatred;拉丁語:argumentum ad odium)是一種訴諸情感謬誤,係透過挑起與某事相關的仇恨與反感,驅使人們不支持某事。 (zh)
