Philip Zimbardo has taught at Stanford University since 1968. He is noted for his research, for many publications and books, and for "giving psychology away" to the public through his popular PBS-TV series, "Discovering Psychology." His most notable study was the 1971 Stanford Prison Experiment, which was a classic demonstration of the power of social situations to distort personal identities and long cherished values and morality as students internalized situated identities in their roles as prisoners and guards.
