Victor believes that in order for the life principle to be useful, one must also have a thorough and educated understanding of death itself. Victor says that in order  “to examine the causes of life, we must first have recourse to death,” which allows the reader an indepth view about his own feelings toward his discovery. The statement also affords us further understanding into Victor's attitude toward his work because we learn that his discovery wasn't enough, that it only sparked his desire to further explore the corruption of the human body.
