Frankenstein and His Creation: Who’s the Real Monster? (Radio/Audio Broadcast or Recording)
Title: Frankenstein and His Creation: Who’s the Real Monster?
Writer: Christine Wisehart
Producer: Christiane Wisehart
Abstract: Mary Shelley’s 1818 novel Frankenstein introduced the world to archetypes we’re still familiar with: the mad scientist and his terrifying creation. But the novel is more than just a horror classic. It also asks questions about the ethics of scientific and technological innovation–questions that we still struggle with today. On this episode of Examining Ethics, we explore one of these questions: is it wrong for scientists and innovators to work or create in isolation? First, we introduce you to “sociability,” an important, behavior-shaping idea in the scientific community of the nineteenth century. Then, we discuss whether scientists and innovators working today have similar ethical obligations. We cover things like the importance of transparency in the ethics of scientific and technological innovation. We also explore the value of democratic oversight to the world of science and technology.
