Zimbardo's Prison Study Website

At you will find a website devoted to the classic Stanford Prison Experiment by Philip Zimbardo.

The site includes:
  • a slide show paralleling the experiment's sequence with explanations and video clips of the short-lived study
  • sixteen discussion questions regarding the study, some including current day applications
  • a very extensive listing of weblinks regarding the prison study and Dr. Zimbardo
  • a detailed biography of Dr. Zimbardo's career
  • FAQs about the study and aftermath
  • a 50 minute DVD documentary called "Quiet Rage: The Documentary" available for purchase.
The DVD sells for $100 plus shipping. I have yet to purchase the DVD and am very curious if it is worth the price. If you have bought the DVD and used it in class, please leave a comment.
