Angels and demons…….

Prof Philip Zimbardo produced one of the most compelling, insightful and unethical pieces of psychological research with the Stanford Prison Experiment. Zimbardo manipulated the everyday roles that people play to prove an important point..the good people can do bad things.

I have been lucky to meet Prof Zimbardo on a number of occasions and he is truly one of the most compelling story tellers especially for a man of his age. Click on the picture below to hear Zimbardo speak about the psychology of evil…before you do take a closer look at the image…..(beware the video is quite a graphic as is the nature of his presentation).

“The decision to act heroically is a choice that many of us will be called upon to make at some point in time.”

–Dr. Philip Zimbardo
