The ever-excellent blog Mind Hacks pointed me toward a special open-access edition of the British Psychological Society’s magazine The Psychologist which covers Stanley Milgram, including articles by psychologists, a historian, and even Milgram’s widow.
Very much worth checking out.
There’s 5 articles in total:
The shock of the old—Stephen D. Reicher and S. Alexander Haslam introduce a special feature which reconnects with Milgram’s vision for social psychology
The man, his passions and motivations—Stanley Milgram’s widow, Alexandra Milgram, with her personal take on his life
Alive and well after all these years—Jerry M. Burger updates the enduring legacy of the Milgram Obedience Studies
The window in the laboratory—Film scholar Kathryn Millard looks at Stanley Milgram as filmmaker
Milgram and the historians—Richard Overy, Professor of History at the University of Exeter, in conversation with Stephen Reicher and Alex Haslam
