Milgram’s famous obedience experiment.

Post by bindeweede »

A study published in Social Psychology Quarterly re-examines Stanley Milgram’s famous obedience experiments from the 1960s.

Milgram’s experiment asked participants to administer electric shocks to a person who was trying to learn a task. The shocks weren’t real and the “learner” was really an actor. But despite the actors shouts of pain, many participants continued to administer what they thought were electric shocks of increasing strength.

The movie Experimenter (released in 2015) was actually based on the story of the Milgram Experiment.

I haven't seen the movie, but would like to.

Well if we can broaden the subject to bizarre an unethical experiments - not necessarily in the field of psychology...
