Abstract
Psychoanalysis was once only a medical term, a method used for treating mental ilnesses. Nowadays, we find it in philosophical register, in various analysis of the content we find in the cultural domain such as film criticism, literature, art and many others. The aim of the thesis was to demonstrate the connection between psychoanalysis and culture by applying them to the theories of identity and identification, at the same time discussing the various aspects of identity and the requirement for the creation of new fluid identities with the emerging social movements such as feminism and elaborating them on Kathryn Woodward's and Judith Butler's theories on identities, difference and gender. Also, the thesis offers the analysis of Mary Shelley's Frankenstein by describing the process of the development of his personality, that is, his ego and the complex nature of Victor in opposition to the monster. Furthermore, it discussed the problematic question of the woman in the novel.

Parallel abstract (Croatian)
Psihoanaliza se kao termin nekoć koristila samo u medicini, kao metoda u liječenju psihičkih bolesti. Međutim, danas ju srećemo u domeni filozofije, u raznim kulturološkim analizama vezanim uz filmsku kritiku, književnost, umjetnost i ostalo. Cilj rada bio je ukazati na povezanost psihoanalize i kulture pritom ih primjenjujući na pitanje identiteta i identifikacije, istovremeno raspravljajući različite aspekte identiteta i potrebu za stvaranjem novih identiteta s pojavom društvenih pokreta poput feminizma kroz prizmu teorija o identitetu, različitostima i spolu Kathryn Woodward i Judith Butler. Usto, rad se bavi analizom Frankensteina Mary Shelley kroz opis razvoja Victorove osobnosti, odnosno njegovog ega te njegove kompleksne naravi u usporedbi sa čudovištem. Nadalje, raspravlja problematično pitanje žene u romanu.
