DIGGING DEEPER: The Milgram Experiment Revisited

Take a look at this interesting article, in which the author re-visited the Milgram experiment. (See attachment)

As stated in NOW THAT YOU KNOW, HOW DO YOU FEEL?, "Milgram filmed the experiment and used this candid footage to edit a 45 minute film called Obedience (Milgram, 1965). By far the longest fragment in the film features a man called Fred Pozi and also in Milgram’s book of 1974 the session with Pozi gets much attention….Milgram: But who was actually pushing the switch? The fragment furthermore shows that Milgram refuses any explanation of the subject blaming the situation. Milgram individualizes the scene: who was actually pushing the switch?"
