I can’t even give this book 2 stars for the important observations regarding human nature because I was so bored and fed up by the last chapter. I couldn’t even get through his notes. Zimbardo, people will act out their inner aggression based in what are clearly deep rooted psychological problems I don’t care what kind of personality tests he claimed to have done the guards of the SPE are clearly suffering from deep rooted homophobia, insecurity, and misdirected anger and frustration zimbadro situations with no established guidelines or a call to answer for their actions.

Author Philip Zimbardo is a world renowned social psychologist from Stanford and his ideas as expressed here are extremely interesting and widely acknowledged. Its a shame the book is such a mess.
He believes that, given the right social circumstances, almost anyone is capable of surprisingly evil deeds.
El efecto Lucifer by Philip G. Zimbardo (1 star ratings)
He is the creator of the famous Stanford Prison Experiment SPE in from which he developed his ideas on the perpetration of evil. He describes the experiment in excruciating detail in the first third of edecto book. He was an expert witness for the defense of one soldier. So far so good, except for being overly long and very repetitive.
But then he goes off on a political diatribe about the George Bush Administration. I’m no fan of that bunch, but I fail to see how that lengthy section of the book furthers Zimbardo’s thesis.
I was hoping for some exploration of Nazi Germany or Rwanda or Greece or Turkey and their meltdowns and genocidal episodes. But there’s almost nothing further.
The Lucifer Effect
And the most important question is never even touched on. Is there any idea why humans are capable of such horrid acts? I have other complaints, but you get the idea. Can’t recommend this book. I hated this book on all levels. It is such a a chore to even skim through it!
I hated how long it is! Over dreadful pages! With more than half discussing the Stanford prison experiments in excruciating detail. I thought the experiment was mundane, and that Zimbardo is really overestimating the results of this 6 day experiment.
I didn’t not enjoy neither Zimbardo’s hypothesis, his research process, or his conclusion. Our situations licifer not make us evil. Yes situations can efecot a lot in us a I hated this book on all levels.
Yes situations can change a lot in us and can even make us act in ways we never thought we would, especially strenuous zimbarxo, but my brain simply refuses to believe that a situation alone can turn a “good” person into an “evil” one. The second part of the book discusses the Abu Ghraib prison scandal, and how Zimbardo drew parallels with his earlier prison experiment.
He concluded that culpability should not be put solely on the guards that tortured and humiliated prisoners both physically and sexually, but luxifer we need to look closely too damn closely to the situation they were operating in. The conditions in the prison, the shortage of food, the ongoing war, the foreign environment and the overly sexualized atmosphere in then prison, are all situations we need to look at closely to understand why the guards acted the way they did.
With all due respect, such situations don’t make you sexually torture other human beings, enjoy it, and take trophy pictures of it.
I was looking forward to this book.
The title was everything I looked forward to unravel; how did good people turned evil? Yet I could not be more disappointed. I’ve always had my discomfort with evolutionary biology when it blames almost anything, and now add to it Zimbardo’s thesis that we can blame situations we are eo in on the lucjfer we commit.
I don’t know but I find it very difficult to swallow. It’s an important subject: But for all that I couldn’t get past the tedious writing.
It’s like somebody tried to suggest that Zimbardo could write a not-boring book by following the old “show, don’t tell” rule. So he put everything into impossible dialogue. It was like reading a really bad screenplay.
I gave up and read the Wikipedia article on the Stanford Prison Experiment instead. Also — and maybe this is quibbling — I couldn’t ever quite get over my disappointment with the title. Zimbardo is looking at evil that grows out of obedience to hierarchy, and let’s give Lucifer his due as a rebel against authority. Zimbardo even quotes Milton at length, so the fellow really should know better.
This book sorely lacked a good editor. The first pages could easily have been reduced to about 50 pages and it would have zimbaddo clearer for the reader.
The last chapter could have been cut entirely. It was an important topic and treating it briefly like an afterthought made no sense. It was also only tangentially related to the topic of the book. The author continually interjects himself into the story in ways that aren’t helpful, goes on tangents that don’t lead anywhere, adopts rhetorical s This book sorely lacked a good editor.
The author continually interjects himself into the story in ways that aren’t helpful, goes on tangents that don’t lead anywhere, adopts rhetorical strategies and devices that don’t play out well or that he’s just not able to competently pull them off.
Lots of potential and started off well with high promises of evaluating some of the atrocities that occurred and investigating the sources of evil. However, half of the book is spent on the Stanford Prison Experiment ad nausea with the other half going into a political tail spin of the Iraqi prison situation.
At the end, the author take the opposing perspective of finding heroic and good in people, but strangely calls his own wife a hero for proposing an early stop to the Stanford Prison Experim Lots of potential and started off well with high promises of evaluating some of the atrocities that occurred and investigating the sources of evil.
At the end, the author take the opposing perspective of finding heroic and good in people, but strangely calls his own wife a hero for proposing an early stop to the Stanford Prison Experiment 30 years prior. I walked away with an interesting fact here and there I was intrigued by the description of this book what makes good people do bad things but was VERY disappointed in the book.
Three-quarters of the book describes in excruciating detail! The writing style is extremely dry and pedantic like reading a dull text book and not very engaging. That was 50 years ago, if something like that happens not more than once every 50 years, how significant is it.
Also experiments from the ‘s that probably couldn’t be replicated today.
