Myths, Monsters, and Modern Science: Frankenstein’s LegacyLike all great works of science fiction, Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein explores what it means to be human. Published nearly 200 years ago, Frankenstein continues to raise important questions: Can science go too far? How do we tolerate difference? Who are the real monsters? Our world is witnessing rapid scientific and technological advances. How do works of the imagination help society cope with these changes? Other themes explored in the novel include nature vs. nurture, the effects of abandonment on children, beauty, good and evil, the limits and responsibilities of science, rationality vs. intuition, faith vs. reason, and, most of all, the power of a good story to invade our imagination and transform how we see ourselves and our world.
