Excerpt from Term Paper :



Milgram's study illustrates that many who have had the responsibility taken from them are although not happy but content to continue with a procedure as long as they are not directly held responsible, thereby giving rise to an obedience through social bonding and situations (Hayes & Orell PG).

In this situation in a comparison with the Tuskegee experiment and Milgram's experiment it can be argued that the members of the medical team were acting under orders from the government and therefore were blameless in their experiments as were the teachers in theory only following orders, obviously this form of passing blame can be seen be as a paradigm in ethical understanding as we are all cogent beings with the ability to reason and question yet it seems when a person is actively allowing himself to take the blame as such then all reason as to ethical understandings of what is right and what is wrong is emptied from the mind.

The problems of ethics conflicting with getting the required or desired result or interfering with the speed of research and the methodology will always be used. The idea of an established and standardised framework as exists with some other profession may help solve some parts of the problem, but will not eliminate all the difficulties, as they have not done in other areas. Some problems will remain whatever framework is adopted due to the opposing aims and requirements of research and the interpretation of ethics by some people. The arguments over what problems exist and the potential solutions to those problems will continue, however if there is one definitive aspect of these problems it is that there will be no universal agreement on exactly what ethics should be adopted and how they should be applied.

Therefore when understanding how ethics deals with experiments on man, can the scientist close his mind and...

...

However, it must be argued that with out the volunteer guinea pig then science would again be no further unless the unethical solution of using "volunteers" similar to the Tuskegee experiment were to occur.

Ethics does hinder experiments but it must also be taken into consideration that ethics and morals are and do belong to the individual and are only laid down by society to meet what it believes is right.
