Dr. Thomas Blass Presents: Stanley Milgram .com. A_12_p_con_3a.jpg (Image JPEG, 549x502 pixels) Stanley Milgram. Un article de Wikipédia, l'encyclopédie libre. Stanley Milgram (15 août 1933 à New York dans le quartier du Bronx[1] - 20 décembre 1984 à New York) est un psychologue social américain. Il est principalement connu pour l'expérience de Milgram (sur la soumission à l'autorité) et l'expérience du petit monde.

Il est considéré comme l'un des psychologues les plus importants du XXe siècle[2]. Biographie[modifier | modifier le code] Il obtient son diplôme de science politique au Queens College de New York en 1954. Par la suite, il travaille surtout à l'université Yale, où il fera ses découvertes majeures. C'est de 1960 à 1963 que Milgram mène une série d'expériences, avec plusieurs variantes, visant à estimer à quel point un individu peut se plier aux ordres d'une autorité qu'il accepte, mais qui entre en contradiction avec sa conscience. En 1967, Milgram reprend une idée développée en 1929 par Frigyes Karinthy : la théorie des six degrés de séparation. Schéma de l'expérience de Milgram.

An odyssey through the evolution of culture. Abraham Maslow. Abraham Harold Maslow, né le à New York et mort le à Menlo Park en Californie, est un psychologue américain considéré comme le père de l'approche humaniste. En psychothérapie, il est selon lui préférable de promouvoir les qualités et les réussites individuelles, plutôt que de considérer les patients comme des « sacs de symptômes » (« bags of symptoms »)[1]. Il est également connu pour son explication de la motivation par la hiérarchie des besoins, souvent représentée par la suite sous la forme d'une pyramide. Biographie[modifier | modifier le code] Abraham Harold Maslow est né à Brooklyn, New York.

Il était le fils aîné de sept enfants d'immigrants russes d'origine juive, arrivés aux Etats Unis moins d'un an avant sa naissance. Après la Deuxième Guerre mondiale, Maslow commença à questionner la façon dont les psychologues étaient arrivés à leurs conclusions, et même s'il n'était pas tout à fait en désaccord, il avait ses propres idées sur la compréhension de l'esprit humain.

Aldous Huxley. Aldous Leonard Huxley /ˈhʌksli/ (26 July 1894 – 22 November 1963) was an English writer, philosopher and a prominent member of the Huxley family. He was best known for his novels including Brave New World, set in a dystopian London, and for non-fiction books, such as The Doors of Perception, which recalls experiences when taking a psychedelic drug, and a wide-ranging output of essays.

Early in his career Huxley edited the magazine Oxford Poetry, and published short stories and poetry. Mid career and later, he published travel writing, film stories and scripts. He spent the later part of his life in the US, living in Los Angeles from 1937 until his death. Huxley was a humanist, pacifist, and satirist. Early life[edit] Huxley began his learning in his father's well-equipped botanical laboratory, then went to Hillside School, Malvern. I believe his blindness was a blessing in disguise.
