Science on Screen: Frankenstein with AC Grayling

The second Science on Screen of the current series was presented by AC Grayling, who chose the iconic 1931 version of Frankenstein. While the film does a considerable disservice to the many questions raised in Mary Shelley’s novel, AC Grayling was able to compensate by giving an overview of the ethical problems that humanity faces when intervening in nature. In particular, recent advances in genetic engineering mean that such problems cannot be dismissed into the future.
