Sarah Otto Sociology 111 April 30, 2007 Ann Coburn-Collins Take-Home Final The book Ishmael by Daniel Quinn displayed many sociological perspectives. A manifest function described in the book would be Ishmael getting his pupil to learn about how man thinks. Another would be when he tells of how man evolved from the beginning to the end of time. An example of a latent function was when Ishmael could communicate telepathically. That was unexpected to be able to communicate with a gorilla. Another latent function described in the book would have been the pupil actually learning form the gorilla. A person would never expect for a gorilla to intellectually challenge a human. Dysfunctions described in the book were like when Ishmael died and when Ishmael asking the question on his poster if man would be able to survive without gorilla or if gorilla can’t survive without man.
