About

An appeal to emotion or "argument from emotion" is any kind of argument which works more by triggering particular feelings ("pressing emotional buttons") than by conveying actual substance relevant to the subject under discussion.

The appeal to emotion is a form of rhetorical deception and is commonly found in company with one or more logical fallacies which it is working to conceal.
