Quiet rage : the Stanford prison study by Stanford University( Visual )

38 editions published between 1988 and 2014 in English and held by 1,362 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In the summer of 1971, Philip Zimbardo, Craig Haney, and Curtis Banks carried out a psychological experiment to test a simple question: What happens when you put good people in an evil place -- does humanity win over evil, or does evil triumph? College student volunteers were pretested and randomly assigned to play the role of prisoner or guard in a simulated prison at Stanford University. This film uses archival footage, flashbacks, post-experiment interviews with the prisoners and guards, and comparisons with real prisons. It documents the study from the surprise arrests of the participants by city police, to the termination of the study after only 6 days. The Stanford Prison Study remains one of the most famous studies conducted in the field of Social Psychology
Darwinism : science or naturalistic philosophy : the debate at Stanford University( Visual )

4 editions published between 1994 and 2003 in English and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Debate before an audience between two professors on the naturalistic vs. the theistic way of understanding human existence. William Provine, Professor of Evolutionary Biology at Cornell University, cites evidence supporting neo-Darwinian theory and argues that microevolutionary processes account for the origin of all life. He asserts that modern evolutional theory is incompatible with belief in God; that there are no absolute moral and ethical laws; that free will does not exist; and that human character is merely a result of heredity and environment. Phillip Johnson, Professor of Law at the University of California in Berkeley, agrees that modern neo-Darwinian theory is atheistic and scientific; however, as a general theory it is a philosophical dogma that is inconsistent with the evidence. Provine and Johnson debate basic questions: Do we owe our existence to a creator? Can the blind watchmaker of natural selection take the place of God? Moderator is Timothy Jackson, Dept. of Religious Studies, Stanford University
