Plato's Cave

Ep. 5 - The Milgram and Zimbardo Experiments (& Golhagen vs Browning on Nazis)

April 4th, 2020

In this episode, I discuss the Stanley Milgram and Phil Zimbardo experiments and what they say about our human nature. These experiments are also tied into the Browning vs Goldhagen debate on how he German population was convinced to do such terrible acts during the holocaust.
