The Milgram Experiment, an Ethics Milestone


The Milgram experiment is one of the most famous studies of obedience in psychology to date. Begun in 1961, the experiment was done in order to better comprehend the acts of genocide committed by the Nazi’s in World War Two. Stanley Milgram, a psychologist at Yale University, was the mastermind behind the study. The focus of the experiment was “conflict between obedience to authority and personal conscience”. Milgram wanted to explore the justifications of genocide based on the testimonies given by the accused during the Nuremberg War Criminal Trials.
