1. In chapters 4, 5, and 6 of his book Black Holes and Baby Universes Steven Hawking addresses the audience of usual readers who are not keen of strict scientific explanations and mathematical equations. Hawking's audience is people who are interested in the Universe structure and processes taking part in the Universe, but these people don't have sufficient mathematical knowledge, so Hawking explains these processes in simple language clear for large amount of people…

The author playfully writes that "the reason we have not been contacted by an alien civilization is that civilizations tend to destroy themselves when they reach our stage" (p.31) - it is the example of pathos.
2. The main idea of the fifth chapter of the book which is called A Brief History of a Brief History is that the author tends to write about such difficult things as the Universe processes in simple language. Many people want to know about the Universe, but they don't have appropriate mathematical education and knowledge for understanding complicated formulas and equations. So, it is very important to describe such ideas in easier language. ...
