That still could make him human because many people have evil in them and there might be things that could set people off to do something bad. What I am saying is that killing is not good but also people have killed before and they are still consider human. So how doesn't that make the creature human. So yes, even though you may disagree with me I still believe that the creature is
To begin with, the creature is defined as human because he talks and thinks like a regular human being. When Victor was reunited with the creature on page 83, the creature has defined himself as "benevolent" and that his "soul glowed with love
One lesson the creature learns is that he “was not even of the same nature as man” (Shelley 102). Here, the creature begins to realize that he is the only one like himself. As read in chapter 11, the creature shares his first human interaction. “I had hardly placed my foot within the door, before the children shrieked, and one of the women fainted. The whole village was roused; some fled, some attacked me, until, grievously bruised by stones and many other kinds of missile weapons, I escaped to the open country,” (Shelley 90).
As the question consist of an analogical argument, so, I will divide this essay into three parts. I am going to define is that human are animals first, describe the rights we have and then using the Kant’s anthropocentric views, Peter Singer’s specialism, Tom Regan’s views on animal right and some examples, to give a full picture in order to support my stance. In my opinions, I strongly agree that all human are animals, but, there are some differences between the human and animals mentally. Thus, I agree with the statement of “animals also have rights”. However, some of the rights we have, are not capable on animals.
The debate over Frankenstein's creature being human is an ongoing discussion, but it is really based on the person perspective on the actions that he took. In my opinion, the creature is like any other human with the same emotions, making mistakes, and realizing them. Although there might have been things that may seem not human, but relating to these days, there has been unfortunate killings by many people. The only difference in the creature and humans is the deceiving looks of the creation. Despite the other view point, there is more human like idiosyncrasies in the creature than what it appears.
On the other hand, he is more of a man by the heroic things he did and his plans for his future. In his plans, he did not want to harm any animals for nourishment; he would rather eat berries and acorns for his meals. The creature is attempting to figure out the essence of life. He is just like us; he wants love, family, friends, and to just be wanted. Society is too stubborn to see his call for support and the helplessness of him.
Victor Frankenstein, is at fault for the creature’s actions. Victor was looking for some honor and triumph, but when he accomplished his experiment, not only did it bring terror to Victor, but to the whole world. The monster never learned right from wrong and was never raised correctly, his first moment of life, all he experienced was the fear in Victor's emotion, and was abandoned right from the start. Victor selfishly isolated himself from society and ran away from his responsibilities which caused destruction to the people Victor cared for and loved deeply. The creature was known as a monster and was doomed due to his appearance.
One’s Ability to Love “The picture I present to you is peaceful and human…” (Shelley, 120) Mary Shelley’s Creature says this as he asks Victor Frankenstein for a mate. The Creature is pleading his case for someone he can give his love to. Someone that can give him love in return. What makes a human, a human? Is it body shape and facial features that make us human?
