Frankenstein: Imagination, Creation, and Ethical Behavior (SLA-BE 499 33779)

SLA-BE 499
33779

Frankenstein was a creation of imagination, yet the story brings up many ethical questions, the kinds of questions that govern everyday life as humans. This TLC examines what is the right thing to do, through surveys of philosophical thought, case studies and theoretical problems, imaginative literature, and films. A public address by a noted Bradbury scholar is also a highlight.
