Fallacy In Frankenstein
Frankenstein originally pushed the monster away it was an act of utter disgrace on his part. Equivalent to disowning your own child, Dr. Frankenstein didn't want to be associated with his creation. Although Dr. Frankenstein acted like a disgruntled inventor who threw away his last project because it wasn't perfect, he didn't realize that the monster had feelings. Some would argue that in this context Dr. Frankenstein was the monster. However just as disowning a child won't necessarily make him go on a killing rampage, it takes more than that to make the monster kill. What the doctor did was insensitive and also very risky. He did not know the full powers of the monster at that time, so what he did was also very careless. But insensitivity and carelessness do not make a monster. Plenty an inventor have invented things that would now be considered careless to invent. The Atomic Bomb, or dynamite to name two. And if Nobel once brushed off his wife, or dumped a girl friend for no reason, would he then be considered a monster?
