The task is to redesign Milgram's experiment so no one is hurt, physically or emotionally. However, from my understanding, the experiment is designed to test how far subjects will obey an authority figure even if it means inflicting pain on another. To inform the subject, in my opinion, severely hinders the purpose of the experiment. Is there a way to test obedience AND inform the subject?
