Ishmael: The Adventure of the Mind and Spirit

“The law we live by is like the law of gravity: There is no escaping it, but there is a way of achievement that is equivalent of flight-“.(Ishmael, pg 105)

Daniel Quinn, the award winning American author, is best known as a cultural critic and publisher of educational texts. Quinn chose to write the socially challenging novel; Ishmael, with the purpose of expressing his concern over human civilization, and to bring awareness to our self destruction in hope for it to come to an end. Quinn believes that we cannot escape our true primal instincts, and our attempts to counter the laws of nature to control the world we live in, is in fact destroying it.
