What is the value of Zimbardo's prison study? Can we really learn anything from role playing or is the real prison situation too different from a group of college students being paid to role play? Is role playing a valid method for collecting social data? 3. Based on your own behaviors, do you agree or disagree with the frustration-aggression hypothesis? What do you think about biological theories such as the role of testosterone? Should violent prisoners be allowed to be castrated? Should this increase their chances for parole? Would this help reduce violence? Why or why not? 4. Are humans innately aggressive or are these behaviors learned? To the extent they are learned, what can parents and society do to decrease violence? Should we reduce the amount of aggression on TV? Would our society be better off without TV? Could this ever happen? Have the students prepare a one-page paper and be prepared to discuss their answers at the beginning of the next class.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
