The Positives and the Negatives
The Main Point/Was it carried out ethically?
The experiment was not carried out ethically because there were no guidelines for the people taking part in it and there weren't any rules for the people who were participating. Also, the participants were not protected from risks they would go through and the people participating couldn't withdraw from the experiment whenever they wanted.
Opinion/How this experiment changed the field of psychology?
The experiment changed the field of psychology by leading to the recognition of ethical guidelines. After this experiment studies must now go under serious evaluation to make sure every experiment is safe and ethical.
