The Human Behaviour Experiments

Friday, May 04, 2007
CBC Newsworld will be re-airing this documentary on the Passionate Eye. Received this email from CBC Documentaries this morning.

(Sunday May 6 at 10pm ET/PT on CBC Newsworld)
Why would four young men watch their friend die, when they could haveintervened to save him? Why would a woman obey phone commands from astranger to strip-search an innocent employee? What makes ordinarypeople perpetrate extraordinary abuses, like the events at Abu Ghraib?Documentarian Alex Gibney (Enron: The Smartest Guys in the Room)revisits these three famous behavioral studies to explore some perennialquestions about why human beings commit unethical acts under particularsocial conditions. After seeing this film, you may never say "badapples" gain.

You might remember that I wrote about this back in September. If you get a chance, I'd highly recommend you check it out. It will make you think about your actions and those of people around you in a whole new light.

Oooh, this was my 500th post.
