Famous “Research” in a New Light

Classmate Ethan shared a rather interesting link with me yesterday, which sheds some new light on the infamous Stanford Prison Experiment. It turns out that beyond the famous ethical issues and some obvious scientific concerns, there may be a rather… unfactual report of what actually took place.

It’s pretty interesting. Thanks Ethan!


That one is largely based on this long, but very interesting article: https://medium.com/s/trustissues/the-lifespan-of-a-lie-d869212b1f62

But it turns out that Zimbardo isn’t alone. There are some concerns about the accuracy of Millgram’s Obedience Study, as well! https://psmag.com/social-justice/electric-schlock-65377


Tell Mr. Robson what's on your mind!
