Designs of Milgram’s and Zimbardo’s researches as aimed to study experimentally humans’ ability to do damage and evil have been compared. It has been shown that diagnosing the ability to cause damage and do evil is always loaded with the researcher’s value-related and ethical ideas of what is proper, allowable or not allowable, and of the price that can be paid for the result.
