Researchers are coming up with many agriculturally and medically beneficial discoveries at astounding rates, but to what end? At this rate of progression, will scientists be able to help themselves from attempting a Frankenstein Creature of their own? Joan Slonczewski expresses in Stem Cells and Human Cloning: The Postmodern Prometheus a much more in depth analysis of where the idea of a Frankenstein Creature can take the world.
