Field Trip To Auschwitz
Our field trip to Krakow provided such an opportunity to really think about explanations of behaviour. There were opportunities for the application of social influence topics including the agentic state and deindividuation, to exercises and discussions on whether biological, cognitive or social learning theories are more valid as we attempted to understand what we saw. We also spent some incredible time with a holocaust survivor born in the Krakow ghettos. Following our visit to the concentration camp at Auschwitz, Birkenau and Schindler’s factory we reflected on the evidential problem of evil, which put this philosophical problem into practice. We also examined the nature of conscience; we considered why it was that the Nazis were able to commit such atrocities and how therefore we can understand what the role of conscience is in an individual.
