One major criticism of the Stanley Milgram study on obedience was his use of deception, which is viewed as a violation of the autonomy of the subjects. APA Standard 8.07 places limits on the use of deception. In their review of the arguments for and against the use of deception, Bortolotti and Mameli (2006) conclude that the use of methodological deception is morally permissible.
For this assignment, review their article and summarize their main points for and against the use of deception. Then, using the Stanley Milgram study and the Jerry Burger (Burger, 2009) replication as examples, present your own conclusion for or against the use of deception. Provide detailed examples to support your findings and arguments.
It is recommended that you support your assignment with at least three scholarly or professional resources. In addition to these specified resources, other appropriate scholarly resources, including older articles, may be included.
