Milgram and Tuskegee -- Paradigm Research Projects in Bioethics
Health Care Analysis: An International Journal of Health Care Philosophy and Policy 2003 March; 11(1): 27-40
This paper discusses the use of the Milgram obedience experiments and the Tuskegee syphilis study in the bioethical literature. The two studies are presented and a variety of uses of them identified and discussed. It is argued that the use of these studies as paradigms of problematic research relies on a reduction of their complexity. What is discussed is thus often constructions of these studies that are closer to hypothetical examples than to the real studies.
