The Lucifer effect : understanding how good people turn evil by Philip G Zimbardo( Book )

47 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in English and Chinese and held by 2,961 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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

Of the twenty-three Brazilian policemen interviewed in depth for this landmark study, fourteen were direct perpetrators of torture and murder during the three decades that included the 1964-1985 military regime. These "violence workers" and the other group of "atrocity facilitators" who had not, or claimed they had not, participated directly in the violence, help answer questions that haunt today's world: Why and how are ordinary men transformed into state torturers and murderers? How do atrocity perpetrators explain and justify their violence? What is the impact of their murderous deeds--on them, on their victims, and on society? What memories of their atrocities do they admit and which become public history?

La timidezza è una condizione generalmente sottovalutata: se ne ignorano le cause, e ancor più, le conseguenze. Per i timidi è infatti difficile avvicinare persone nuove, difendere i propri diritti, farsi valere negli studi e sul lavoro. Tutto ciò può condurre a stati d'animo negativi, come scarsa autostima, solitudine, ansia, depressione. È possibile fare qualcosa al riguardo? Si può intervenire dall'infanzia per un controllo della timidezza?

He rewarded her with a loaf of bread that she shared with her fellow prisoners--an act of generosity that would later save her life.

Edie spent decades struggling with flashbacks and survivor's guilt, determined to stay silent and hide from the past ...

4 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 456 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Mask You Live In follows boys and young men as they struggle to stay true to themselves while negotiating America's narrow definition of masculinity. Pressured by the media, their peer group, and even the adults in their lives, our protagonists confront messages encouraging them to disconnect from their emotions, devalue authentic friendships, objectify and degrade women, and resolve conflicts through violence. These gender stereotypes interconnect with race, class, and circumstance, creating a maze of identity issues boys and young men must navigate to become "real" men. Experts in neuroscience, psychology, sociology, sports, education, and media also weigh in, offering empirical evidence of the "boy crisis" and tactics to combat it. The Mask You Live In ultimately illustrates how we, as a society, can raise a healthier generation of boys and young men
