1. Alchemy deals with a magical science, which is what Victor wanted to do in creating his monster. Paracelsus, Albertus Magnus, and Cornelius Agrippa were all alchemists. “…here were men who had penetrated deeper and knew more.” (p.41) Victor’s father rejects alchemy as “sad trash” because Newton’s book put down alchemy.
2. Natural Philosophy is the old term for physical science, especially physics. “Natural Philosophy is the genius that has regulated my fate; I desire, therefore in this narration, to state those facts which led to my predilection for that science.” (p.40)
