April 2006 PHL 201 Turner Response #1 It is said that “One’s life cannot be meaningful, even if it was created for a purpose, unless one finds one’s life meaningful.” Frankenstein and the Golem are prime cases that will be used to assess the above claim. Though I still find philosophy as a whole complicated and would not normally do arguments like this to friends in the future, for the sake of the paper I find the claim true. I argue true because if one does not find life meaningful then they just feel useless since one’s life only truly matters to that person or creation. In the story of Frankenstein, the creature created eventually stumbled across journals written by his creator which in turn led him to discover why he was created and for what purpose. In this case, the discovery of purpose in life was met with “rage and despair.” Even after this discovery he still was in the same predicament, as still scared people, was an outcast, and still wished to be accepted by all like any normal person.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
