Considered one of the most famous experimental studies in psychology of all time, Obedience focuses on the conflict between obedience to authority and personal conscience. Conceived in the wake of World War II criminal trial of Adolph Eichmann, who ordered the deaths of millions of Jews, the experiment was designed to explore how far people would go when under the instruction of an authority figure. Based on footage shot at Yale University, subjects were told to administer electric shocks of increasing severity to another person. 65 percent of experiment participants administered the experiment's final massive 450-volt shock. 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 levels.
