comes to mind when you think of science? Experiments? Classes? Biology?
comes to mind when you think of medicine? Doctors? Surgery? Prescriptions?
All of these things have played
a large role in shaping the past. When Mary Shelley wrote
her novel "Frankenstein" the influences of the scientific
world were booming. The idea of bringing life to those who
have passed on was a concept being entertained by some of
the most intelligent minds at the time. Inventions, experiments
and medical discoveries paved the way for the future of science,literature
However, not all breakthroughs were as beneficial as one might
have hoped. Often times, a scientist would come up with a new method
of treatment which would not be as successful as intended. Quackery
and unorthodox methods of treatment became common place at this
time. Stereotypes also developed as scientists became more prominent
and people watched them closely. Scientists fell subject to ridicule
through caricatures. Yet, despite the harsh criticism that some
scientists fell victim to, there were many benefits that could be
reaped from the work done by these brilliant minds.
