Frankenstein's struggle is internal and philosophical in nature. He is constantly debating the ethical implications of the exploration of the natural sciences and the morality of a playing God by creating a living creature from artificial sources. He is torn between two choices: pursuing his ambition to gain knowledge and entering into a realm that is unknown; or respecting the sanctity of natural laws and refraining from further exploration of this hidden world. Frankenstein is eventually able to resolve his conflict when he decides to take the plunge and pursue his ambitions. His choice to ignore society's warnings and embark on a dangerous quest of scientific breakthroughs reflects his passionate exploration of the secrets of life and the natural sciences. This ardent spirit is mirrored in Walton, who is also driven by ambition and a thirst for knowledge, but with a more optimistic outlook than Frankenstein's. In pursuing his dreams, Walton is willing to take risks and forsake the opinion of society. In the end, Frankenstein and Walton both resolve their internal conflicts and choose paths that are marked by ambition and a curiosity for the unknown.
