A Scholarly Analysis on the Intelligence of Sperm Whales, i.e. Moby Dick, and a New Theory on the Rescue of Ishmael. Multiple scholars provide evidence to the high intelligence and intrinsic emotions of the sperm whale in order to lend support to the thesis of the paper. Lastly, the author presents a new argument, and challenges the established norm to provide textual evidence to support the theory: it is Moby Dick, himself, who saves Ishmael’s life.
