How did their outfits affect their attitudes?
Watch The Stanford Prison Experiment (Documentary)
There are many ethical problems posed by Zimbardo’s (1972) simulated prison experiment. Discuss them briefly. Does this study give us any insights into prisons? If so, what are they? How did their outfits affect their attitudes? Defend or attack Zimbardo’s study and support your argument with examples. Also, provide a brief discussion of Milgram’s obedience to authority experiment as shown in the video. Which ones do you think are acceptable ethically? Explain why or why not. Please do not write personal opinions. Comments need to reflect the knowledge you have gained in this class.
