The Myth Of A Lone Genius
6.4 ART, Arts, 6.5 OTHER HUMANITIES
In Mary Shelley's novel Frankenstein, the protagonist was a gifted scientist who had secretly discovered how to impart life to non-living matter. Dr. Frankenstein was visionary and talented, but unfortunately flawed in character and ultimately despairing of his grotesque invention. Amongst other themes, Shelley’s tale reminds us that the future is not impervious to our efforts to shape it and to the consequences of our actions. We can shape the future through human creativity.
