Zimbardo’s Stanford Prison and Kingsfield’s Harvard Law
Posted by The Situationist Staff on October 31, 2011
Last week, Phil Zimbardo delivered another remarkable lecture at Harvard Law School — this time tracing his journey from studying evil to inspiring heroism. We hope to post that video in several weeks. For his introduction, Situationist Editor Jon Hanson assembled this short video comparing Professor Zimbardo’s Prison Experiment and Professor Kingsfield’s Harvard Law School (The Paper Chase), both of which reached their 40th anniversary this year.
