Scott is correct, and if bearophile and I ever give you conflicting
advice, take bearophile's.

A (corrected) bit of code that might serve your purpose would be
as follows:

class SomeClass:

    def doNothing():

    def function1(self):
        print "running function 1"

    def function2(self, passedFunction=doNothing):
        print "running passed function"

again, though- bearophile's is the best, and most standard,
answer here
