The Manual - Epictetus - A Short Summary and Review

Frankenstein - Mary Shelley - A Short Summary and Review

A short summary of the book Frankenstein:

A scientist plugs a creation into the current of life. It ends badly.

My favorite Mary Shelley quote from the book:

"Beware, for I am fearless, therefore powerful."

Questions I pondered while reading Frankenstein:

Does "can" always mean "should"?

Should science and morality ever be separate?

My review of the book Frankenstein:

Scientific irresponsibility at its finest.

I always felt sorry for the monster.

Never abandon what you build.
