Phil 110 Ishmael Study Questions Chapter 1 1. Who is Ishmael? 2. How does the pupil feel about Ishmael?  What opinions does he express? 3. Why does Ishmael state “five severed fingers do not make a hand”?  What is he  talking about? 4. Briefly explain the idea of ‘feeding’.  What is the comparison Ishmael makes?  How can this apply to humans? 5. What is Ishmael’s “interior life”? 6. Why is Ishmael puzzled by the human/animal distinction?  Construct a short  argument justifying this distinction. 7. “If you can’t discover what’s keeping you in, the will to get out soon becomes  confused and ineffectual.”  Explain this in your own words. Chapter 2 1. “…and hearing it incessantly, you don’t listen to it.  There’s no need to listen to it.  It’s always there humming away in the background, so there’s no need to attend  to it at all…”  What is “it”?  What is the speaker referring to?
