Frankenstein: Penetrating the Secrets of Nature Poster Exhibition

Frankenstein: Penetrating the Secrets of Nature Poster Exhibition

Frankenstein: Penetrating the Secrets of Nature explores how Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein story poses questions about the consequences of unchecked power and societal responsibility for other human beings, and provides a framework for discussions of medical advances that challenge our traditional understanding of what it means to be human.

This exhibition was developed and produced by the National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health.
