Frankenstein the novel and the film Mary Shelley\'s Frankenstein: Myth for Modern Man How can we think of Frankenstein and ignore the film classic of 1931—who can forget the remarkable appearance of Boris Karloff as the unnamed monster? Yet the celebrated film does not follow the novel by Mary Shelley. Although the scene of a futuristic laboratory entrances movie audiences with the mad Dr. Frankenstein and his faithful assistant Igor, the scene is derived from twentieth century imaginations and

Freud
Freud Freud didn\'t exactly invent the idea of the conscious versus unconscious mind, but he certainly was responsible for making it popular. The conscious mind is what you are aware of at any particular moment, your present perceptions, memories, thoughts, fantasies, feelings, etc. Working closely with the conscious mind is what Freud called the preconscious, what we might today call available memory: anything that can easily be made conscious, the memories you are not at the moment thinking

In the silence of this room the sound of that motor became very prominent in our consciousness. Usually, while talking and listening, thinking and worrying, we don\'t notice it. That motor reminds me of a wonderful realization I had in the hotel room where I\'m staying a couple of blocks from here. There\'s a refrigerator in the room, and of course the refrigerator goes on and off as

Genetics and Mental Illnesses Discoveries in genetics have helped change the way society looks at mental illnesses such as manic depression and schizophrenia. A generation ago, the leading theory about schizophrenia was that this devastating emotional and mental disorder was caused by cold and distant mothering, itself the result of the mother\'s unconscious wish that her child had never been born. A nation-wide lobbying effort was launched to combat such unfounded mother blaming, and 20 years l

Elaine Morgan The crucial question about human evolution is why humans differ so strikingly from the African apesdespite their close genetic relationship. Most Darwinists would agree that such differences are usually attributable to differing environmental pressures; and hence that our ancestors at some stage probably occupied a significantly different habitat from the ancestor of the gorilla and the chimpanzee. For the last half-century it has

Is the inequality between men and women a human universal In this essay I will look at whether the inequality between men and women is a human universal, or whether there are or have been societies in which women shared power equally with men, or even exercised power over them. In order to do so, I will look at the writings of a number of anthropologists. In The Subordinance of Women: A Problematic Universal, author Ruth Bleier indicates that a central premise in the biological explanations in

By the same token, mushrooms were mushrooms, some were palatable, some were offensive and some would induce death, but they were all mushrooms.

Usually, these theories were one directional in the nature / nurture question. Today, a new approach to deal with this question is emerging. This new app
