THE INSPIRATION FOR THE MAJOR MOTION PICTURE THE EXPERIMENTER
“The classic account of the human tendency to follow orders, no matter who they hurt or what their consequences.”  — Michael Dirda, Washington Post Book World
In the 1960s Yale University psychologist Stanley Milgram famously carried out a series of experiments that forever changed our perceptions of morality and free will. The subjects—or “teachers”—were instructed to administer electroshocks to a human “learner,” with the shocks becoming progressively more powerful and painful. Controversial but now strongly vindicated by the scientific community, these experiments attempted to determine to what extent people will obey orders from authority figures regardless of consequences. “Milgram’s experiments on obedience have made us more aware of the dangers of uncritically accepting authority,” wrote Peter Singer in the New York Times Book Review. Featuring a new introduction from Dr. Philip Zimbardo, who conducted the famous Stanford Prison Experiment, Obedience to Authority is Milgram’s fascinating and troubling chronicle of his classic study and a vivid and persuasive explanation of his conclusions.

Recenzii

“Milgram’s experiments on obedience have made us more aware of the dangers of uncritically accepting authority.”
“Stanley Milgram’s experiments on obedience to malevolent authority seemed to me to be the most important social psychological research done in this generation….The quality of exposition in the book I s so high that it qualifies as literature as well as science.”
“This well-designed and brilliantly executed research study, reported in an unusually fascinating and very readable style, reveals the elusive and sometimes shocking conditions under which men obey authority regardless of the morality involved.”
“A major contribution to our knowledge of man’s behavior. It establishes firmly in the front rank of social scientists in this generation.”
“One of the most significant books I have read in more than two decades of reviewing.”
“The classic account of the human tendency to follow orders, no matter who they hurt or what their consequences.”
“Milgrim’s experiment-based analysis is a model of systematic, sequential, patient pursuit of answers to a significant social problem. His investigations accomplish what we should expect of responsible social science: to inform the intellect without trivializing the phenomenon.”
