Stein shares, “My father was the first Stein in all history, as far as we know, to have accumulated any real capital. He did that by getting a fine education at Williams College and then at the University of Chicago. He was a stone genius, and among his many aspects of genius was that he knew that he must regularly convert his human capital - his intelligence and education and connections - into financial capital: namely, savings.” By using this story Ben Stein uses ethos because he is a credible source in the situation.

Infants must be taught and must learn as they grow their brain will fill up with the knowledge they are taught. He stresses that a person's experiences are vital to the growth of themselves. Locke's theory inspired Shelley’s idea of the Frankenstein monster.
Self-awareness is arguably the most fundamental issue in psychology, developmentally and evolutionary according to infant and child development specialist Dr. Philippe Rochat. From birth to age four or five a child will gradually form self-perception. Seeing and touching are ways in which a child perceives themselves through another’s eyes which is a very important time in a child’s life. Dr. Rochat as well claims that without the proper guidance and support, the process of self-perception becomes torturous for a child. Mary Shelley depicts the fight to perceive one’s self in her gothic novel Frankenstein, through the miseries of the Monster created by the central character of the novel, Victor Frankenstein.

He came into the world with the innocence and emotional power of a child. His abandonment forced him to ponder his own life and creation on his own. Memories of Victor, ““Unable to endure the aspect of the being I had created, I rushed out of the room…” (Shelley 58) flooded his brain. Unlike natural creation by God, followed by nurture and love, Victor was cold and evasive.
Both Victor and the monster developed
Since the creature he created was born already an adult and abandoned by Victor, he had no time to learn how to read and write he had to teach himself. Unlike Walton and Victor the creature had neither family structure nor affection. The creature learned a lot of his skills from observing and discovery.
