"The Milgram experiment on obedience to authority figures was a series of notable social psychology experiments conducted by Yale University psychologist Stanley Milgram, which measured the willingness of study participants to obey an authority figure who instructed them to perform acts that conflicted with their personal conscience.
The number "37" refers to the fact that 37 of 40 test subjects complied with the orders of the authority figure, even though they erroneously believed that they could hurt or kill another person in doing so."
