Nazis Response To Milgram's Results In Psychological Experiments

Satisfactory Essays
The results discovered in psychological experiments such as Milgram’s outweigh the negativity of the responses from test subjects. Milgram’s results brought a deeper insight to humans and their interactions with authority and provided a possible explanation to the Nazis’ responses in the Nuremberg trials. Psychological sciences simply cannot advance if consent forms become restrictive to the point that everything is revealed to the student before the experiment has started. Specifically, informing teachers that they were not administering real electric shocks to the learner would make the teachers not take the experiment seriously and/or provide disingenuous reactions to the learner’s cries of pain.
