Summary:
In this film, we see subjects instructed to administer electric shocks of increasing severity to another person, and we observe both obedient and defiant reactions. After the experiment, we witness subjects explain their actions firsthand. Obedience is as relevant today as it was at its publication. As we as a society witness suicide bombings, torture, and gang atrocities, we wonder just how far people will go. Fifty years later, this experiment still resonates as people ask themselves, 'Would I pull that lethal switch?' This is the only authentic film footage of Milgram's famous experiment and is essential to all foundational work in social psychology at the graduate, undergraduate, and high school level.
