    Philip Zimbardo s The Lucifer Effect is a difficult read, not because its premise is particularly startling, but because its examination of the psychology of evil shows it to be disturbingly simple By placing each act of breathtaking cruelty beside a description of its perpetrator invariably an ordinary, psychologically normal person Zimbardo makes clear that we are just animals socialized into one behavior, and easily socialized into another And though he never outright asks it, every page Philip Zimbardo s The Lucifer Effect is a difficult read, not because its premise is particularly startling, but because its examination of the psychology of evil shows it to be disturbingly simple By placing each act of breathtaking cruelty beside a description of its perpetrator invariably an ordinary, psychologically normal person Zimbardo makes clear that w...

    Zimbardo fucked up, BIG TIME During the Stanford Prison Experiment, an experiment he created, he was part of the actual testing and also became victim to the traps the other participants fell into The idea was to separate the participants into two groups, guards and prisoners with Zimbardo taking the role of prison overseer in a monitored environment But things quickly went from weird to damn right unethical Instead of simply playing the roles assigned to them, everybody involved actuall Zimbardo fucked up, BIG TIME During the Stanford Prison Experiment, an experiment he created, he was part of the actual testing and also became victim to the traps the other participants fell into The idea was to separate the participants into two groups, guards and prisoners with Zimbardo taking the role of prison overseer in a monitored environment But things quickly went from weird to damn right unethical Instead of simply playing the roles assigned to them, everybody involved actually became the roles The guards became violent, the prisoners became unhinged and unstable and Zimbardo himself became rather tyrannical and uncaring The experiment would have continued if his girlfriend, at the time, didn t break through to him and show him how messed up things were.It almost eruptedThe most apparent thing that I noticed was how most of the people in this study derive their sense of identity ...

    I was excited to read this, since I have a psychology background and had heard that it was a good look at the Stanford Prison Experiment, which I studied in college I wasn t too impressed with this book though It is at least 100 pages too long and bogged down by excessive detail, making it read like a numbing textbook The breakdown is as follows 200 pages on Zimbardo s Prison Experiment, 100 pages of analysis of the experiment, 75 pages on Abu Ghraib, 75 pages about the Bush administration s I was excited to read this, since I have a psychology background and had heard that it was a good look at the Stanford Prison Experiment, which I studied in college I wasn t too impressed with this book though It is at least 100 pages too long and bogged down by excessive detail, making it read like a numbing textbook The breakdown is as follows 200 pages on Zimbardo s Prison Experiment, 100 pages of analysis of the experiment, 75 pages on Abu Ghraib, 75 pages about the Bush administration s culpability, 50 pages on factors for improvement, 25 pages on heroism, and 50 pages of footnotes The author did not attempt to eliminate his personal biases even embracing them, ca...

    I, after a couple of weeks, have finally finished The Lucifer Effect I normally don t dog ear books because, well, that s almost sacrilegious, but there were points that I knew I wanted to come back to Like this one which really came out there unexpectedly, and had me laughing so hard After asking what his parents do, his religious background, and whether he goes to church regularly, Prescott is angered by the prisoner s statement this his religion is nondenominational He retorts, You ha I, after a couple of weeks, have finally finished The Lucifer Effect I normally don t dog ear books because, well, that s almost sacrilegious, but there were points that I knew I wanted to come back to Like this one which really came out there unexpectedly, and had me laughing so hard After asking what his parents do, his religious background, and whether he goes to church regularly, Prescott is angered by the prisoner s statement this his religion is nondenominational He retorts, You haven t even decided about something as important as that either The guy was so angry that he then had to step out of the room and let the board continue the parole hearing Wow Then there was this little tidbit about the lessons lea...

    Well, I need to state my prejudices upfront I m kind of a secret fan of Doctor Zimbardo See, I guess at some point he put together some kind of massive 26 episode series of half hour lectures on how the mind works for public TV They would come on at some ungodly hour of the morning so that I used to catch them while scarfing down my nutritious Lucky Charms and locally squozen OJ before leaving for work Doctor Z would introduce each episode with a kind of geekish seriousness of purp...

    As a huge psych nerd I was really happy to stumble across this book in the local library For those who don t know and or have forgotten psyc101 Zimbardo is the professor behind the infamous Stanford Prison Experiment The seminal experiment where Spoiler alert I guess where ordinary young men were put in a simulated prison situation randomly assigned to prisoners and guards, mind and the whole thing had to be shut down before the week ended due to inhumane abuse and practices.The Lucifer Ef As a huge psych nerd I was really happy to stumble across this book in the local library For those who don t know and or have forgotten psyc101 Zimbardo is the professor behind the infamous Stanford Prison Experiment The seminal experiment where Spoiler alert I guess where ordinary young men were put in a simulated prison situation randomly assigned to prisoners and guards, mind and the whole thing had to be shut down before the week ended due to inhumane abuse and practices.The Lucifer Effect is the first time Zimbardo has opened up with a first hand account of the whole experiment which is equal parts intriguing and horrifying The majority of the first part of the book and the books as a whole is devoted to the experiment, and while I found it enthralling I suspect anyone looking forpop psychology would find the section very heavy given its a blow by blow analysis of the experiment The most twisting thing about it is hearing how sucked into the role Zi...

    A classic on the subject, Zimbardo tackles in this book the longest description and explanation of his Stanford Prison Experiment, along with two other main themes the Abu Ghraib abuses and, in the last chapter, heroism and altruism Now, of course I am a little biased at the moment I am using his study as a building block for an essay on obedience and my Social Psychology paper was on Abu Ghraib , but I loved this book I love the subject, I love the writing, I find the entire theme endlessly A classic on the subject, Zimbardo tackles in this book the longest description and explanation of his Stanford Prison Experiment, along with two other main themes the Abu Ghraib abuses and, in the last chapter, heroism and altruism Now, of course I am a little biased at the moment I am using his study as a building block for an essay on obedience and my Social Psychology paper was on Abu Ghraib , but I loved this book I love the subject, I love the writing, I find the entire theme endlessly fascinating and also don t tell anyone I really like Zimbardo I think he is a great psychologist who happened to conduct the right experiment at the right time, and his work on heroism and altruism could truly change the way we raise our children and the way our societies respond to human rights violations and other morally unjustifiable things For anyone interested in the psychology of evil , situational vs dispositional factors, oppressive systems or for anyone who comes with a historical in...

    Well, interesting title and interesting subject, but I highly doubt his hypothesis This book was borne out of Philip Zimbardo s work with a U.S army soldier, who was one of the prison guards at Abu Ghraib in Iraq Zimbardo is also the one who ran the infamous Stanford Prison Experiment in the 1970s Basically, his premise in this book is that circumstances shape the individual, and our actions can be molded by the circumstances that we are in E.g., it was the duress and egregious circumstance Well, interesting title and interesting subject, but I highly doubt his hypothesis This book was borne out of Philip Zimbardo s work with a U.S army soldier, who was one of the prison guards at Abu Ghraib in Iraq Zimbardo is also the one who ran the infamous Stanford Prison Experiment in the 197...

    This is a horribly difficult book to read, not because Zimbardo s writing is bad or the subject is uninteresting, but because it exposes how easily people can be manipulated into a role and I don t just mean the guards, but also the prisoners It s important because it examines, in minute detail, the events of a now infamous experiment the Stanford Prison Experiment This was run, not by Stanley Milgram, as people often think, but by Philip Zimbardo, and even he became caught up in the act of This is a horribly difficult book to read, not because Zimbardo s writing is bad or the subject is uninteresting, but because it exposes how easily people can be manipulated into a role and I don t just mean the guards, but also the prisoners It s important because it examines, in minute detail, the events of a now infamous experiment the Stanford Prison Experiment This was run, not by Stanley Milgram, as people often think, but by Philip Zimbardo, and even he became caught up in the act of it It wasn t even a very convincing prison, and yet it quickly made both guards and prisoners act their roles And not even them, but people outside it who should have seen through the illusion, like the chaplain.Both this experiment and Stanley...
