It's improper to back-project modern concepts onto a discussion of works that predate the existence of those concepts. ...whereas there's virtually no discussion of science or technology in Shelley's novel, since after all the narrator considered the science of reanimation to be evil and thus deliberately avoided giving any specifics about his techniques.
I'm curious what you'd make of Larry Niven's claim in Playgrounds of the Mind that The Divine Comedy was the first hard science fiction novel.
