    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. People will not conform to the ideas of the leaders of society if their personal beliefs differ from those of the leaders. If they accept the rule of authority it is because they agree with the opinions of those they see to be in authority. This will cause them to do what they believe to be right. 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).…

    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. Dogs embody characteristics that we wish all humans could possess: unconditional love, joy, unabashed love of life, and never being one to rush to judgment. Dogs have a way of finding the people who need them, filling an emptiness we don 't even know we have. Ryder is my good boy. Ryder is an Australian Shepherd, who has coloring the same…

    As characters arose from various situations, a glimpse into the upheld idea of wild thinking became overt. Mr. Wickham, for instance, posed the first series of uncultured acts that applied such conclusions of independent thought. His first such exploit was introduced later in the novel, yet provided a great deal of insight to his character. When Wickham seized the opportunity to, in unguarded moments, act irresponsibly under the Darcy family’s care, Fitzwilliam Darcy took note of this and knew…
