Outline the similarities and differences between mailgrams (1963) obedience study and burger’s (2009) replication.
Part 1
In this essay I am going to outline differences and similarities in Milgram’s (1963) abidance study and Burger’s (2009) replication. Comparing the two studies to find differences and similarities explaining them and showing them with evidence.
Milgram was one of the most innovate and productive psychologist of his generation. He undertook a variety of studies but he is largely remembered for one piece of work “the obedience” study. (Phillip Banyard 2014 p. 67) he created an experiment using participants to explore obedience with people to authority. He devised a system where “teachers” had to ask “learners” a series of questions and if they didn’t get the answer correct they had to be electrocuted by the teachers. This was to see how far people were willing to go because someone told them to but knowing that this could have serious consequences.
Burgers published an article in the Journal American psychologist. He done a replication of Milgram’s experiment this not being an exact replicon. This experiment has its similarities and its differences. (Jovan Byford 2014 p. 64) he could not do an exact replicon because mailgrams systems would not be classed as moral in the 21st century.
Although the two experiment foundations are the same there are differences. One of them differences is the times they were constructed, Milgram’s was in the 1960’s and Burger’s was in 2009. I consider this to be a big difference because people in the 1960’s may have has a different outlook on authority the compared to people in the 21st century, meaning they may have respected authority more in the 1960’s influencing them and the results in the two experiments. This was a point trying to be showcased in in burgers experiment titled “replicating Milgram: would people still obey today?” Burger wanted to find out whether rates of obedience are likely to be as high...
