Conclusion The conclusion of my essay is that the only way to disperse such norms in the society is to start taking the step from our selves because it’s us who makes the society and every single individual is counted as a member of a society. The myths and norms about these beauty notions were never there but only the people chained the whole society in filth, hatred, disgust, rejection, oppression, refusal, cruelty and brutality that murdered thousands souls like Frankenstein. There is nothing as such beautiful but only the thinking makes it so. Outer beauty surely attracts but inner beauty captivates.
“Written in 1816, when she was only nineteen, Mary Shelley’s novel of “The Modern Prometheus” chillingly dramatized the dangerous potential of life begotten upon a laboratory table. A frightening creation myth for our own time, Frankenstein remains one of the greatest horror stories ever written and is an undisputed classic of its kind” (Bantam Dell, 2002). In her novel, Mary Shelley expresses the worldview of a universe without a supreme God, a world where the race of man have immense power and knowledge and even the ability to impart life to non-life; a world where nature created itself and displays divinity. Although these views do not incorporate the Biblical worldview, several ideas of mankind in Frankenstein do assimilate with the truths of the Bible.
With more broadcasting of evil each day, the question; “what makes a monster” is often asked. Monstrosity is the state or fact of being monstrous. Monstrous by definition can mean having a frightening opinion, extremely large, or a person who is outrageously evil. Many artists and journalist have tried to tackle the question, though two authors in particular stand out. In Frankenstein Mary Shelley uses the hideous looks of the monster along with the average looks of Victor to show her readers that monstrosity comes from within.
“‘We gained control of many things. But we had to let go of others’” (Lowry 95). In the novel, The Giver by Lois Lowry, the main character Jonas is an Eleven, soon to be a Twelve. At the ceremony of Twelve a person’s Assignment is chosen.
Modern Prometheus In Frankenstein, by Mary Shelly, a gothic horror, mimicked the myth "Prometheus". Prometheus brings power and knowledge to mankind while Victor searches for power through enlightment. They suffered disastrous problems for their actions. They both go beyond and ignore their limits. Victor was fascinated by the power of electricity, but was flabbergasted by his creation when he brought it to life.
Utilitarian relates to euthanasia because utilitarianism means that if an action benefits a group than it is justified by the church. Many church groups believe in utilitarianism. However, it reject moral codes that are based on customs, tradition or beliefs. Utilitarianism is also the core idea of wrong actions will leave to negative things and vise versa. The church something is sinful based on the consequences that come with it.
Imagine having to endure so much pain and suffering for a majority of your life that you would just want it all to end. Well, there is a way one can stop their own pain and suffering and it is called euthanasia. Euthanasia is the painless killing of a patient suffering from an incurable and painful disease. The act may only be done solely to those diagnosed with terminal illnesses such as cancer, aids, and heart disease. Many people agree with the idea of euthanasia as it can help those who are suffering be stripped of all the pain they are enduring.
Vicor created the monster because he was fascinated with life and death. Victor wasn’t aware about the responsibilities he had to take when creating Frankenstein, Frankenstein came to victor wanting a matte desiring happiness. The creator would have to come out sooner or later taking the responsibility of his creation and the lives it took. Victor rejected his creation because it 's horrifying and made by different body parts. If victor would had stayed with the monster the monster could have been just like any other human expect with a deformed body.
However, euthanasia did not become issue until around the 20th century as two Germans who were Dr Karl Binding, who as a professor of law and also a doctor of philosophy, also Dr Alfred Hoche, a doctor of medicine and psychiatrist who published a book called “The Release of the Destruction of Life Devoid of Value”. They said it was absurd that a patient has to die from their pain therefore it is acceptable to lessen the act of dying and people also have the right to die with dignity, which goes against Josef Kure, DPhil interpretation of the Hippocratic Oath which stated euthanasia was evil. After the publication of the book in 1920 that advocated the killing of valueless people, there was a widespread of propaganda in the from of books and education of children in school about the economic benefits of euthanasia. It was aimed at the traditional 19th century views and attitudes towards the extremely ill and wanted the view that if a person would be better of judged dead then that person should be killed.
Thesis Statement: Unethical medical practices are unacceptable procedures that can be used for the benefit of mankind. Issues in unethical procedures in the medical field are common context discussed in debates. The main question among these procedures is its violation in the moral context of such activities. Such procedures do not satisfy laws, principles and theories based on the accepted norms and ideas and influenced by customs, cultures and beliefs that are generalized as good. However, results on some unethical procedures brought beneficial results on mankind such as the development of polio vaccine and discovery of human telomerase which was made possible in the extraction of Henrietta Lacks’ cells without her consent.
