Seth Braunstein Sean Stapleton The Ethics of Killing The Nuremburg Defense The Stanford Prison Experiment was a psychological experiment to test whether or not the average person would change into a given role, or remain themselves. Twenty- four college students participated in this experiment, and were split up by the flip of a coin into two groups of 12; one group who became prison guards, and the other group became prisoners. The experiment was to test whether or not the guards and prisoners, would actually assume their role throughout the experiment, considering none of them were actual guards or had been committed of a crime. The results of this experiment were slightly unexpected and after only a few days, the guards had become completely sadistic, while the prisoners had seemed to become broken men with psychological disturbances. The Milgram Experiment was another psychological experiment where people were administered to give test subjects electric shocks when a question was answered incorrectly. The shocks ranged from a low voltage to a dangerously high one.
