Very few stood up to the McCarthy era’s witch hunts. Fewer, still, were able to win the battle to maintain their basic civil rights. The subject of Bob Blauner’s book, Resisting McCarthyism, is the story of the University of California faculty members that refused to sign an anti-communist loyalty oath. Through their struggle and sacrifice they were able to win their battle
Jonah Lehrer, the author of “The Neuroscience of Screwing Up”, is referring to the subjectivity of the students in regards to the science experiment. The students didn’t even watch the video and yet they have already formed their own opinions (lehrer, 2010). Their beliefs blinded their conclusions. They saw only what they wanted to see. It is obvious that the physics students were very subjective in their thinking; their preconceptions inhibit how they see the experiment and data being presented (lehrer, 2010).
Bob Henry Mrs. Patterson English 1123 p25 October 31, 2012 “Revisiting the Stanford Prison Experiment: a Lesson in the Power of Situation,” is about a prison experiment designed to prove how good people can do bad things when face with a certain situation. In the experiment Philip G. Zimbardo brings 24 physically and mentally healthy college students with no criminal history to participate in his experiment. These participants were assigned to either play a prisoner or a guard and were paid 15 dollars a day just to be in the experiment for 2 weeks. Before the two weeks were even over Zimbardo had to call the experiment to an end, due to extreme street and zombielike attitude and posture in the prisoners. To some the experiment seemed like a complete failure but in reality Zimbardo proved his point within six days of his experiment.
In reference to this topic, Zimbardo discusses the Stanford Prison Experiment as well as the violent Abu Ghraib prison incident. Zimbardo discusses how rather than looking at the individual as an evil person, evil acts should also be looked at in relation to the situation the person is in. Zimbardo refers to power being in the “system”, the system refers to political, economic, or legal power. The system itself can corrupt an individual, different situations can affect the behavior of an individual. 2.
Sabrina Velez Police & the Community The Lucifer Effect In 1971, psychologist Philip Zimbardo created an experiment that explored the impacts of becoming a prisoner or prison guard; basically someone with authority did to people. Zimbardo was interested in finding out how participants react when placed in a simulated prison environment. The researchers set up a simulated prison in the basement of Stanford University’s psychology building, and then recruited 24 undergraduate students to play the roles of both prisoners and guards. All participants had no criminal background, no psychological issues or medical conditions. They participated for a two-week period with a $15 a day initiative.
My thoughts on “STANFORD PRISON EXPERIMENT” The Stanford Prison Experiment raises troubling questions about the ability of individuals to subsist suppressive or submissive roles, if the social setting requires these roles. Philip Zimbardo, professor of Psychology at Stanford University, began researching how prisoners and guards would assume obedient and authoritarian roles. His primary goal in this experiment was to find out the process when guard and prisoners become controlling and passive. He did this by setting up a mock prison in which all of the prisoners were assigned the same uniforms and cells, and used numbers instead of names. The guards were assigned uniforms and offices, somewhat similar to the prisoners except they were equipped with billy clubs, whistles, handcuffs, and keys, and had freedom.
The only impression they may have had was that it was a horrible experience knowing it was a prison 4) If you were the experimenter in charge, would you have done this study? Would you have terminated it earlier? Would you have conducted a follow-up study? If I wanted to investigate on how people’s behavior would change, if they had to play
Max Gillies Psychology 103 Ms. Andrews 5/1/10 The Stanford Prison Experiment In 1971 one of the most prestigious schools in the country, a well accomplished professor and selected group of local students began one of the most controversial and thought inspiring case studies in history. Setting out to see how people react when they have either authoritarian positions or submissive ones. The thesis being that the prison, in this case the modified Stanford basement, controls the situation rather than the people inside of it. What the experiment reveled was a disturbing glimpse at the human psyche. The experiment quickly took on a very serious tone.
Rules of ethics in United States colleges have changed drastically over the years. Universities today keep a tighter grip on what students and staff say about others then they did in the past. In some cases, colleges go too far and render their students rights to the second amendment, freedom of speech. Three specific examples of colleges that restrict and individuals right to freedom of speech are at Harvard University in an attempt to fight racial problems, the University of Michigan in its struggle with homosexual issues and the University of Washington were problems grow from a woman’s studies class. The first example from Dinesh D’souza’s book, Illiberal Education is from Harvard University, Stephan Thernstorm, a professor teaching “the peopling of America” class, was charged with “racial insensitivity” by three black students of his class.
