  • Disobedience To Situations By Ross And Nisbett

    A Comparative Analysis of Ross and Nisbett’s “The Power of Situations” and Fromm’s “Disobedience as a Psychological and Moral Problem” Introduction Ross and Nisbett disagree with Fromm about the causes for obedience or disobedience to authority. It states in the introduction to “The Power of Situations”: “Erich Fromm conceives of obedience and disobedience as products of one’s character or of one’s moral choices” (627). This is suggesting that Fromm believes a person will obey or disobey based on their personality traits. He states: “All martyrs of religious faiths, of freedom, and of science have had to disobey those who wanted to muzzle them in order to obey their own consciences, the laws of humanity, and of reason” (623). People are willing to not obey an one authority if they are following a greater authority.

However, Lee Ross and Richard Nisbett take a contrasting view to Fromm’s ideas. They claim in “The Power of Situations”: “People’s inflated belief in the importance of personality traits and dispositions, together with their failure to recognize the importance of situational factors in affecting behavior, has been termed the “fundamental attribution error” (629).…

  • Descriptive Essay About Dogs

    I have always been a K9 lover. It never fails to amaze me how ordinary people trade in dogs for these hissing, stubborn, self-centered felines we call cats.
