After his creation comes to life, he refuses to accept his obligation as the creator to his creation. He does not care for it, shelter it, provide it with food or love, nor teaches the creation. When realizing how to actually make his creation work he found out just how evil and strong his “monster” truly was. By bringing this creation to life; a destructive being that he had no control over, he doomed his own life and his intentions. Dr. Frankenstein was blinded by the fact that he was unable to foresee the effects that a creature could never be fully accepted into the human race.
The novel Frankenstein written by Mary Shelley is a work of fiction that breaks the ethics of science. Ethics is defined as rules of conduct or moral principles which are ignored in the story. The story is about a person named Victor Frankenstein who creates an artificial being. Victor abandons the being out of fear and the being is left to discover the outside world on his own and be rejected by people making the monster go on a violent rampage. Victor’s decision would affect him later on by the monster killing his loved ones causing Victor to suffer.
He defies God, just like the Greek story of Prometheus. Since the monster escaped, he cannot take it upon himself to realize that it could be potentially dangerous. He should man up and just get over it. Later on in the story when the monster destroys everything dear to him, Frankenstein learns that only God has the ability t... ... middle of paper ... ...new species will arise and terrorize humans. Since he refused, the monster becomes angry and kills the doctor’s newlywed, Elizabeth.
I will not hear you. There can be no communicate between you and me; we are enemies. Begone, or let us try our strength in a fight, in which one must fall” (68). At this point in the novel, I sympathize with the monster even though he has become a terrible person. As his creator, Victor Frankenstein should have cared for the monster despite his disgusting appearance, but Victor ran away from his responsibilities toward creature, he did not give the creature what he wanted in his life, because he was feared of being killed by the creature.
Victor could not believe what he had done and abandons the monster because he's confused. The monster tries to integrate himself into society but only to be beaten and not wanted by the people. Victor Frankenstein is the true monster in the novel Frankenstein by Mary Shelley, because only God can create life, cause death, and judge. In the novel, Frankenstein, Victor Frankenstein is the real lawbreaker and monster in this story. It was surprising how he had the intelligence to gain and apply the knowledge and skills to create life with the power of science.
Animal Rights Non-human animals are given rights only because of their interactions with human beings. Without involvement with humans, animals do not deserve rights. It is through this interaction with humans that animals are even given moral consideration. We do not give rights to a rock simply because it is a creation of Mother Nature, similarly non-human animals do not have rights unless it is in regards to humans. As pointed out by Jan Narveson "morality is a sort of agreement among rational, independent, self-interested persons who have something to gain from entering into such an agreement" (192).
We see the alien as a monster because he terrorizes and kills the crew. Also “Mother” which is the ships computer that offers advice and guidance like a mother would is also seen as a monster because it abandons the crew, which is seen as an un-motherly thing to-do. And last we see the shadowy Corporation that the Nostromo is working for. Its complete disregards for the crew by inviting the alien onboard the ship. All of these monsters are interconnected by the fact that each of them are not a single person nor human.
This is a major loss for a living being. The creator is at fault here because the monster does not know better. Victor should have taken responsibility by accepting, raising, and controlling the monster. After Victor destroys his work on the female monster meant to ease the monster's solitude, the monster is overcome with suffering and sadness. These feelings affected his state of mind and caused him to do wrong things.
It was Frankenstein and the society’s fault that the monster actually turned into a monster, they didn’t reach out to him, and instead they froze him out of the society because of his looks. In conclusion, both novels have the “monster” theme and show us society and its preconceptions and that society judges by appearance. The monster was mild and beautiful inside, but "ugly" and horrible outside and therefore everyone feared him. They never gave him a chance to prove his gentle nature. Dorian was stunning but had an awful inside, yet everyone loved him and spoke well about him.
One gains the ability to decide whether to address the conflict or shy away from it, and within the conflict presented in the book Shelley uses symbolism and imagery to help understand the deeper meaning of morals and values. The monster in Frankenstein establishes the way he behaves and approaches tasks by observing the behavior of others rather than acquiring morals from Christianity. It is almost as if his mora... ... middle of paper ... ...ecessor denoting what is right and wrong, the creature was able to learn for himself, and generate what he believed was correct individually. It is important today to not let the influence of others be so powerful in order to be able to make proper judgement and stand up for oneself it is necessary that one possesses knowledge and experience, something no one can be born with. In Frankenstein, this exact theory was introduced, the creation of a creature that behaved and believed in a way that lacked continual teaching from others was implemented.
