If you read the actual book Frankenstein by Mary Shelley, you realize the richness and meaning that is abandoned in the popular Frankenstein movies. A prophetic writer, she addresses man’s grappling with God’s power that can be related to our most modern times of technological advancement. We will discuss the following:

  • Jung’s God Archetype
  • How the God Complex can help us learn about ourselves.
  • The shadow of the perfect human and the question of immortality.
