Calling baseclass method from a derivated class (others will probably give you a better solution)

class Base:
    def meth(self):
        print "Base.meth"

class Derived (Base):
    def meth(self):
        print "Derived.meth"
    # Embeds knowledge of superclass in method implementation.
    def chain(self):
        Base.meth(self)


b = Base()
# Find b's meth, Base.meth.
b.meth()

d = Derived()
# Find d's meth, Derived.meth
d.meth()

# Find d's chain, which in turn calls Base.meth.
d.chain()

# Call Base.meth directly.
# Probably a more object-oriented way...
Base.meth(d)
