THE LUCIFER EFFECT
Understanding How Good People Turn Evil
Offering intricate details of his landmark Stanford Prison Experiment for the first time (and also drawing on examples from history), he replaces the notion of the "bad apple" with that of the "bad barrel" (the idea that the social setting and the system contaminate the individual rather than vice versa) and addresses humanity’s capability to resist evil.
