To elaborate, he thought his coworkers were truly his friends although they made fun of him; however, it made Charlie happy and excited to go back and see them. Second, he was very motivated to learn and become smarter just like his friends Joe and Frank, even though they were just average people. Charlie said enthusiastically, “They said Miss. Kinnian told that I was
His teacher, Miss Kinnian recommend him for the surgery out of anyone in the class due to his egre and positive outlook on intelligence. However, after the surgery, Charlie finds intelligence was a nice treat but was far from an importance in life and only took him away from what truly mattered. One could believe Charlie was wrong to undergo the surgery because of the side effects that came with the surgery such as physical and emotional instability, and amnesia, the depresion it came with, and how he lost all of his friends and loved ones with his extreme intelligence. First off, one reason Charlie should not have gotten the surgery is the depression and suicidal thoughts it came with for
Despite the risks, Charlie Gordon has his intelligence increased, but later suffers from deterioration of his intelligence, amnesia, and senility. Since Charlie was mentally handicapped and naive, should he had been chosen to get the operation with the known risks? After the multiple benefits he has gained from the operation, Charlie was right to have
A good servant knows what their master means, and Grumio didn't. Grumio eventually saw what Petruchio meant, but didn't until later, when it didn't matter. Grumio is not a very good servant, acting ridiculously, because his skull was too thick to understand what Petruchio meant. Petruchio should
Charlie did whatever the doctors asked of him and he worked to his full ability even when it was hard to. His determination to become smart is one of the main reasons that the doctors decided to choose him. One of the most important qualities that make up Charlie is his courageous and friendly attitude. When Charlie was asked if he wanted to receive the operation, he agrees to it without hesitation even though it might be temporary. He never has anything bad to say about people and sees the good in everyone.
The conflict in the short story is that Charlie Gordon wants to be smart, he will soon get a operation done and be like everyone else but better. Once he was smart his brain started to deteriorate. The author showed the conflict by Charlie's progress reports. Throughout the progress reports you can see he starts to have a better IQ than starts going back to his normal IQ. In the script it only say that Charlie believes that everyone thinks he is killing himself at his pace [par.9
Charlie did not even benefit that well from being a test subject in the experiment. Similarly, the treatment of Charlie was not very ethical because he was not treated specially for his mental state of disability. Lastly, this surgery did not provide enough benefits to even dent the weight of his unethical death. In the story Charlie was used because of his inferior intelligence and not treated well enough as he should have which led to his wrongful death. This story was fictional, but the use and abuse of human test subjects is
They are not archetypes. No one is fully good or fully bad. Take Ian Goade: We first see him as a teacher, who takes his job seriously. We like him, because he seems like a good person. He teaches kids, he cares for them (“I helped the boy up from the ground and asked if he was hurting anywhere”) and he doesn’t seem arrogant (“Not because I’m a better teacher than my colleagues”).
People should always take a risk to improve themselves especially if there is nothing to lose. “Flowers for Algernon” is a unique short story about ethics and self-improvement written by Daniel Keyes. The main character, Charles Gordon has a low IQ, but goes through some surgery to have his IQ increase three times. Readers experience his mental change through his many progress reports and can read about how his intelligence rapidly spikes at an alarming rate. After his IQ level reached the peak, it decreased as quickly as it increased.
The use of the animals in the past, present, and future are getting worse as the time goes on. Places such as a laboratory or factory, who make the medications for humans, do not work as expected, and most labs do not even know about because of the things they do. By making all products non-animal tested it would save money, it would save many animals lives, and it would make customers rather that it was not tested. An alternative to animal testing is to use electronic devices because they are so advanced now they could simulate the same thing. All in all animal testing should not be
