According to Gina Kolata author of “What Nuremberg Code?”, “American judges heard testimony about Nazi doctors performing horrendous medical experiments on whomever they pleased” and “To insure this would never happen again, the Nuremberg code was written”(Kolata). In the two quotes, it claims that the Nuremberg code was written to get full permission and consent from the human subject being tested. The quotes connect to the idea that the experiments were inhumane and the Nazi doctors abused their use of the method of advancing medical and health knowledge by performing several crimes against humanity that ultimately led them to face the consequences of their actions. Because of the nasty and terrible experiments conducted the Nuremberg code was established and the experiments and the Nazi doctors were put to
Thinking about the deal with his family in mind, Victor begins his work on the second monster. The first monster made Victor suffer terribly and threatened his family; trying to scare Victor for not creating his mate, the monster angrily said to Frankenstein, “I can make you so wretched that the light of day will be hateful to you” (162). While looking back upon his unfinished work, Victor remembers “the miserable monster whom I had created,” (152). “With the companion you bestow I will quit the neighborhood of man,” (142) promises the monster to Victor upon completion of his mate. Victor, trying to act morally, destroys the monster for the good of the world.
Mary Shelly in Frankenstein described a character Victor who is cursed by his own knowledge. Young Victor fascinated by natural forces, learned chemistry and use his knowledge to generate a new life. Even though Victor succeeded in his pursuit, but the implication of his own knowledge brought curse not only to himself but his family and friends too. Victor created a monster who strangled his younger brother William to death, Justin Martinez an innocent Frankenstein family’s made accused of William’s death. An innocent Justin sacrificed her life because of Victor’s creation, and same for Victor’s best friend Henry and fiancé Elizabeth, they also lost their lives.
Throughout Frankenstein, Mary Shelley shows how dangerous knowledge can be. Discuss. In her novel, Frankenstein, Mary Shelley highlights how the pursuit of knowledge can lead to disastrous consequences when it is placed in the wrong hands. This is evidenced by Victor Frankenstein’s carless actions, and that of his creation when it is discovering the world and society for the first time. Victor’s reckless behaviour contributes not only the deaths of his family, but the creature’s nature of becoming sinful through experience.
As encounters between people occur memories or moments that may impact one’s future are created. In Frankenstein by Mary Shelly and Grendel by John Gardner encounters between characters help develop and progress the story. The relationships between the major and the minor characters in Frankenstein and Grendel help illuminate the themes of lost innocence, isolation, and power. In Frankenstein, Shelly develops Victor Frankenstein, a scientist who creates a monster, through the loss of his mother, which results in the loss of his innocence. The death of his mother causes him to become obsessed with the “mysteries of creation,” which is demonstrated in his endeavors at university in Germany.
Sacrificing. Suffering. Despising. The novel Frankenstein by Marie Shelly tells the story of Victor Frankenstein, a young scientist who creates a grotesque creature in an experiment trying to invent life of his own. Victor regrets his action so turns the creature lose to the world and closes himself in his abysm of thoughts.
In Frankenstein by Mary Shelley, Victor Frankenstein, a scientist, has a desire for science and couriers this by attempting to create life. He does not reason about the effects that might happen and desires the power to create. He creates this monster by sewing beautiful body parts from humans and the result remains a grotesque creature. This creation of the monster has numerous consequences and completely ruins Frankenstein's life. There remain many instances of abandonment in which Frankenstein has to take responsibility for.
Many advances in science have solved problems and had a positive influence, but some advances have been catastrophic. An example of this is, Zyklon B that was originally used as a disinfectant in the 1920s and later was used to kill mass quantities of people by the Natizis in World War 2. This is certainly the case in Mary Shelley's novel Frankenstein. In the novel, Shelley illustrates this idea through the character of Victor Frankenstein, who is so deeply enticed by pursuing knowledge that his life collapses. Through her development of the character, Frankenstein, Shelley demonstrates desiring knowledge can be disastrous.
Vengeance, an act of inflicting pain and suffering on another individual, was used between the two protagonists as a means to resolve conflict. The monster accomplished his revenge by murdering Victor's loved ones, while Victor responded through direct violence on the monster and his creature bride. Ultimately, both achieve their revenge on each other through their own demise. These acts resulted in tragic and devastating consequences for both Victor Frankenstein and the monster. If Victor has created his monster, and integrated him into society, and gave him the knowledge, affection he deserved, then it can be inferred his relationship with humans would have been completely different.
Sometime, long ago, it was decided that the scientific arts were evil hidden amidst the tutelage of religion; when in reality they had developed into a window set before a picturesque landscape of which scientists (that of which are truly just spectators) and curious simpler folk alike could simply gaze at the wonders of humanity and creation. Man, dating back long before the publication of Mary Shelley 's "Frankenstein" in 1818, have held the desire to play God. To create and destroy as life does, to alter the creations of nature as "God" himself would. This complex breeds a multitude of issues and fears that many scientists, distracted simply by the wonders they are beginning, are blind to. Within itself, this is dangerous.
