Stanley Milgram

Stanley Milgram ( à New York dans le quartier du Bronx[1] - 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.

En 1974, Milgram publie Obedience to Authority. The Homepage of Professor Philip G. Zimbardo. A cyberportal to science, art, and history based on Howard Bloom's books The Lucifer Principle and Global Brain. An odyssey through the evolution of culture. Abraham Maslow. Aldous Huxley.
