Odd to have an article by a little-known modern scholar cited immediately after a paragraph discussing Aristotle. Who is Reynolds and what gives her work standing on par with Aristotle? What developments in the understanding of ethos took place in the two millennia between Aristotle and Reynolds? In a lengthy article on the history of ethos, Reynolds might well deserve mention, but in an article so brief as this one R's work should simply be included in the bibliography.--Henebry (talk) 20:08, 22 September 2010 (UTC)
The Greek word "pistis" means conviction, belief, or faith. I do not believe it means "proof" as the text states, but the "proofs" are the means by which to induce "pistis", or conviction, belief, or faith. I thinkthat statement should be re-examined and changed. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 16:13, 2 June 2013 (UTC)
It's synonymous to morality
In the context of schools
Hi, I looked up this page because I found the word ethos being used in the context of schools - i.e. that "a particular school's ethos is" this or that. This seems to be a fairly widespread usage, and deserves a mention along with some attempt to trace the origin of the term. I think perhaps the term is also much misused in this context. -Wwallacee (talk) 15:12, 26 March 2017 (UTC) Wwallacee (talk) 15:12, 26 March 2017 (UTC)
Talked about exactly this topic over lunch today - then looked up Wikip and found this thread.
I suggest ethos is human and not institutional - so the ethos of a school on any one day is precisely the ethos of the collective leadership accountable for school. I think it matters to join those dots. To offload onto an institution (for example a charity or a school) a supposed ‘ethos’ that in reality has behind it only bricks, mortar, etc, seems to me to duck an important issue. Schools are people in this context. A school ‘ethos’ is the collective ethos of the governors. Structuredethics (talk) 21:33, 21 September 2020 (UTC)
