    Description

    This course will examine Mary Shelley's 'Frankenstein' and its enduring influence as a gauge for cultural anxieties surrounding technological advancements. We will read and analyze the 1818 text using the recent MIT edition, which provides insightful annotations and essays that explore the novel's portrayal of scientific creativity and ethical responsibility. We will then consider how the trope of Frankenstein -- a man-made creation exceeding its creator's control -- has been adapted across literature and film to express evolving fears about technology. We will focus on understanding how these adaptations both reflect cultural attitudes and anxieties surrounding technological progress and also help shape society's evolving relationship with science and technology.

    Description

    Philosophy is a careful inquiry into fundamental questions which lie at the heart of human existence, but are often unaddressed. Perennial questions, such as: Is anyone really free? Is there life after death? Does life have any meaning? And Who am I really? Philosophers seek to identify and investigate these questions and critically examine popular answers to them. In the process they seek to identify and, if possible, expand the boundaries of human knowledge concerning them. However, concern for these deep questions extends beyond canonical philosophical texts. They are, for example, also occasionally touched on in film. Some rare films even take them as their central theme and seek to directly challenge our, generally, unreflective answers to them. This course will utilize some of these philosophically themed films to introduce students to Philosophy. The course is intended to serve as an introduction to Philosophy as an academic field of study, an art of personal reflection, and a tool for dialogue. Emphasis will be placed on the critical evaluation of arguments.
