Modern Knowledge

Today knowledge is mainly book smarts, like knowing math, science, and history. Though many people back in Victors day would agree with, knowledge was also just knowing how to cultivate a garden or raise a family, as many people back then couldn't get access to advanced education. Today if you don't have book smarts you have a much harder time trying to survive.

Victor ignores the monster and lets it learn everything itself.

Victor wanted to teach and raise the creature himself until he realizes how horrible the creature is. "Oh! No mortal could support the horror of that countenance." (Shelly, Chapter 5) Because of this the monster is now forced to learn every on his own.He will mostly do this through experience. He learns how to forge for food, use a fire to his benefit, and teaches himself to talk and read by listening to people.
