DR. PHILIP ZIMBARDO: Stanford Prison Study to Heroic Imagination Project
“What pushes some people to become perpetrators of evil, while others act heroically on behalf of those in need?”
~ Dr. Philip Zimbardo
Hear Dr. Philip Zimbardo, one of the most influential psychologists of our time for his disturbing discoveries from his Stanford Prison Study, talk about the importance of being an “everyday hero.”
Dr. Philip Zimbardo
A professor emeritus at Stanford University, creator of The Stanford Prison Experiment, former President of the American Psychological Association, and award-winning designer and narrator of the 26-part PBS series, Discovering Psychology, Dr. Zimbardo has spent over 50 years teaching and studying psychology. Aptly described at his keynote address at the 2017 Evolution of Psychotherapy Conference as “Mr. Psychology” by Dr. Jeffrey Zeig, the breadth, depth, and impact of Zimbardo’s contributions to the field of Psychology and to society is unsurpassed. His work is reflected in his 60+ books and over 600 professional and popular articles and chapters, among them: Shyness, The Lucifer Effect, The Time Cure, The Time Paradox and most recently Man, Interrupted.
EVERYDAY HEROISM CHAMPION
Deeply compassionate about the human condition and the implications of our behavior on the lives of others, Zimbardo’s current research looks at the psychology of heroism, asking the poignant question: “What pushes some people to become perpetrators of evil, while others act heroically on behalf of those in need?” His work offers a creative empowering spin on turning the negative social processes of conformity, obedience, and the bystander effect upside down.
“THE POWER OF ONE: Be there first; if you don’t act, who will?”
~Dr. Philip Zimbardo
Stanford Prison Study (1971)
In creating and implementing this study, Zimbardo was himself brought to his knees as he personally discovered how easily the vortex of evil can tempt and bring down even the best-intentioned psychology researchers themselves, demonstrating how no one is immune from the capacity for evil. This experience forever humbled Zimbardo and ignited his passion for cultivating the capacity for kindness, courage and heroism as much as possible and became the seed for his later founding of The Heroic Imagination Project.
“We all have the potential for Good and Evil.” ~Dr. Philip Zimbardo
“All Evil begins with 15 volts. For Jews forced to wear a yellow star.”
Dr. Philip Zimbardo, Social Psychologist talking about Dr. Stanley Milgram’s Obedience Experiment”
Stand up, Speak out and say “That’s wrong”
A passionate educator and advocate for everyday heroism, Zimbardo has devoted his life to sharing his knowledge about the human condition to help cultivate kindness, courage, and positive deviancy. Helping reduce bullying as much as increasing individual and collective consciousness in living with a humane heart, Zimbardo’s vision offers a new perspective on the #StandUpSpeakOut Movement that has recently been reignited.
CHANGE THE WORLD
Theme song for The Heroic Imagination Project by Audrey Proulx
“The question you have to ask yourself: What is the ripple effect going to be in your life?”
~Dr. Philip Zimbardo
Heroic Imagination Project
The Heroic Imagination Project (HIP) non-profit is Dr. Philip Zimbardo’s proudest and most important social initiative and will likely be his greatest legacy. HIP applies what we know from social psychology and related research to create positive social change. Poignantly aware of the very real dangers of conformity, obedience and the bystander effect, The Heroic Imagination Project is actively promoting kindness and other pro-social behaviors to reduce bullying and other negative social influence around the globe.
“No one is exempt from the possibility of being coerced by the dark side of human nature.”
