There is a sense that we could, in the future, create life. We can already manipulate genes and DNA. Creating life in the form of genetic engineering may not be far away. How might we treat these creations? Will we care for them or will we abandon them? Will they be considered human? You might consider the sci -fi story Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep (Philip K Dick) as a futuristic view of Frankenstein. Many of the larger themes in Frankenstein deal with the ethics of science and creation.
