This week on The Method Section, Tom takes a look at The Stanford Prison Experiment. Possibly the most famous psychological experiment ever conducted, but maybe for the wrong reasons! The results nonetheless are used all over the world in court rooms to justify people’s actions. But what if the conclusions are invalid? And if it were to be done again, how would it be done?
