BBC Prison Study

BBC Prison Study

Findings from the study were first broadcast by the BBC in 2002. They have since been published in leading scientific journals and textbooks and have also entered the core student syllabus. They have changed our basic understanding of how groups and power work.

More recently, insights gained from the study have also provided the basis for a radical reinterpretation of Stanley Milgam’s ‘Obedience to Authority’ research.

In this website we tell the story of what happened in the study. We explain the scientific implications of our findings. We answer frequently asked questions about the study. We also provide a series of activities and resources that allow for deeper insights into the implications of the study for a range significant issues – from the nature of leadership to the origins of tyranny.

Whether you are a student, a teacher or an interested member of the public, we hope that you find the material here both interesting and useful. We also welcome comments and insights that will help us to improve the site for visitors who come after you.

The Jung Page

The Jung Page

Carl Jung was one of the creators of modern depth psychology, which seeks to facilitate a conversation with the unconscious energies which move through each of us. He contributed many ideas which continue to inform contemporary life: complex, archetype, persona, shadow, anima and animus, personality typology, dream interpretation, individuation, and many other ideas. He had a deep appreciation of our creative life and considered spirituality a central part of the human journey. His method of interpretation of symbolic expression not only deepens our understanding of personal material, opening the psychodynamics of our personal biographies and dreams, but the deeper, collective patterns which develop within culture as well. In his memoir, Memories, Dreams, Reflections, Jung wrote that meaning comes when people feel they are living the symbolic life, that they are actors in the divine drama. That gives the only meaning to human life; everything else is banal and you can dismiss it. A career, producing of children, are all maya (illusion) compared to that one thing, that your life is meaningful.

EPsych

EPsych

Welcome to the worlds of ePsych. This exotic place is devoted to the study of psychology, the science of behavior and the mind. I am Brasha-san and, like you, am a student of psychology. Although I have studied the subject for many years, I still find it complicated, bewildering, confusing, maddening, at times even unbelievable. But psychology is also wonderful, beautiful, and glorious!

Without a doubt, psychology is the most personal of all the sciences. It is the science of you and me and all the other people and creatures we interact with throughout our lives. When you learn about psychology, you will discover how people are able to perform seemingly impossible activities with ease, and why they sometimes stumble on the simplest of tasks.
