T1 TEDTalks Philip Zimbardo, how ordinary people become monsters...or heroes A1 TED (Organization), Films for the Humanities & Sciences (Firm), Films Media Group., Films on Demand., PB Films Media Group PP New York, NY YR 2008 AB "Professor Zimbardo deserves heartfelt thanks for disclosing and illuminating the dark, hidden corners of the human soul," says Václav Havel, former president of the Czech Republic. Philip Zimbardo knows what evil looks like. After serving as an expert witness during the Abu Ghraib trials, he wrote The Lucifer effect: understanding how good people turn evil. From Nazi comic books to the tactics of used-car salesmen, he explores a wealth of sources in trying to explain the psychology of evil. Leader of the notorious 1971 Stanford Prison Experiment, Zimbardo recently published The Time Paradox, which explores different cultural and personal perspectives on time. In this TEDTalk, Zimbardo shares insights and graphic unseen photos from the Abu Ghraib trials and discusses how easy it is to be a hero and how we can rise to the challenge.
