The lucifer effect understanding how good people turn evil

"How can good people become evil? How can honest people be induced to behave illegally, and moral people seduced to act immorally? The answers to such questions lie at the heart of this fascinating exploration of the darker side of human nature by the award-winning psychologist Philip Zimbardo. Examining the causes of evil, Zimbardo provides the first in-depth analysis of his classic Stanford Prison Experiment. He describes how a group of ordinary students was placed in a mock prison and how, in less than a week, the study had to be terminated when the 'guards' became increasingly sadistic and the 'prisoners' pathological. He considers the findings of the experiment and its relevance to society today (not least at the Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo Bay prisons), raising fundamental questions about the nature of good and evil - and how and why most of us could be initiated into the ranks of evil doers."--P. 4 of cover.

  • "What makes good people do bad things? How can moral people be seduced to act immorally? Where is the line separating good from evil, and who is in danger of crossing it? Renowned social psychologist Philip Zimbardo has the answers, and in The Lucifer Effect he explains how-and the myriad reasons why-we are all susceptible to the lure of ʺthe dark side.ʺ Drawing on examples from history as well as his own trailblazing research, Zimbardo details how situational forces and group dynamics can work in concert to make monsters out of decent men and women. Zimbardo is perhaps best known as the creator of the Stanford Prison Experiment. Here, for the first time and in detail, he tells the full story of this landmark study, in which a group of college-student volunteers was randomly divided into ʺguardsʺ and ʺinmatesʺ and then placed in a mock prison environment. Within a week the study was abandoned, as ordinary college students were transformed into either brutal, sadistic guards or emotionally broken prisoners. By illuminating the psychological causes behind such disturbing metamorphoses, Zimbardo enables us to better understand a variety of harrowing phenomena, from corporate malfeasance to organized genocide to how once upstanding American soldiers came to abuse and torture Iraqi detainees in Abu Ghraib. He replaces the long-held notion of the ʺbad appleʺ with that of the ʺbad barrelʺ-the idea that the social setting and the system contaminate the individual, rather than the other way around. This is a book that dares to hold a mirror up to mankind, showing us that we might not be who we think we are. While forcing us to reexamine what we are capable of doing when caught up in the crucible of behavioral dynamics, though, Zimbardo also offers hope. We are capable of resisting evil, he argues, and can even teach ourselves to act heroically. Like Hannah Arendtʼs Eichmann in Jerusalem and Steven Pinkerʼs The Blank Slate, The Lucifer Effect is a shocking, engrossing study that will change the way we view human behavior."

  • "Cosa fa sì che i buoni diventino cattivi? Philip Zimbardo, noto come l'ideatore dell'Esperimento carcerario di Stanford, racconta qui la storia di questo studio. A un gruppo di studenti furono attribuiti a caso i ruoli di "guardia" e "detenuto" in un ambiente carcerario simulato. Dopo una settimana lo studio fu interrotto perché quei normalissimi studenti si erano trasformati in guardie brutali e in detenuti emotivamente distrutti. Zimbardo descrive come certe dinamiche di gruppo possano trasformare in mostri uomini e donne perbene e ci permette di comprendere meglio fenomeni di estrema crudeltà, dalla disonestà delle multinazionali a come soldati americani prima degni di stima siano giunti a perpetrare torture su detenuti iracheni ad Abu Ghraib."
