  • Character conflict – Frankenstein vs The Creature

How Victor Frankenstein puts all this energy into create the perfect creature, to make it seem beautiful. Then to realise its not and to leave it to survive on its own. The creature realises he has been left and all he wants is some sort of companion or relationship. He then goes against V.F.

  • Scientific exploration – Frankenstein’s creation, messing with his ‘today’ science
  • Idea Conflict – Personal morals vs society’s morals
  • Church vs Science – Morals/religion vs the exploration of science

Quotes:

  • “ It was the secrets of heaven and earth that I desired to learn; and whether it was the outward substance of things or the inner spirit of nature and the mysterious soul of man that occupied me, still my inquiries were directed to the metaphysical, or in its highest sense, the physical secrets of the world.”
  • “I was capable of a more intense application and was more deeply smitten with the thirst for knowledge.”
  • “One man’s life or death were but a small price to pay for the acquirement of the knowledge which I sought…”
  • “Had I a right … to inflict this curse upon everlasting generations.”
  • “But it was all a dream; no Eve soothed my sorrows nor shared my thoughts, I was alone. I remembered Adam’s supplication to his creator. But where was mine?”
  • “I, not in-deed, but in effect, was the true murderer.”
  • “Natural philosophy is the genius that has regulated my fate; I desire, therefore in this narration to state those facts which led to my predilection for that science.”
  • “The next morning I delivered my letters of introduction and paid a visit to some of the principal professors. Chance – or rather the evil influence, the Angel of destruction… led me first to M. Krempe, professor of natural philosophy… He asked several questions… I replied carelessly… ‘Have you,’ he said, ‘really spent your time studying such nonsense?'”
  • “It is even possible that the train of my ideas would never have received the fatal impulse that lead to my ruin.”

Science Exploration

V.F shows us that ancient philosophy and science had more promise to endless possibilities (Also backed by one of his professors, M. Waldman). While one of his professors M. Krempe wanted to follow the modern philosophy, which could be this argument of not stepping too far across the line. Knowing this boundary between morals or religion and church, which impact societies beliefs. As modern philosophy and science are said to have less promise for endless possibilities.
