Philip Zimbardo sa come è facile smettere di essere buoni e diventare cattivi. In questo video condivide qualche idea e alcune foto inedite emerse durante il processo ai soldati che torturavano i detenuti ad Abu Ghraib. Poi si concentra sull'altro lato della medaglia: com'è facile diventare un eroe, e come noi possiamo esserne all'altezza.

Philip Zimbardo was the leader of the notorious 1971 Stanford Prison Experiment — and an expert witness at Abu Ghraib. His book The Lucifer Effect explores the nature of evil; now, in his new work, he studies the nature of heroism. Full bio
