March 30, 2024


The article undertakes an analysis of ethical risk factors, understood as contexts for the emergence of unethical behavior, attitudes and modes of conduct among representatives of the uniformed services. Identification of the mentioned factors, made on the basis of meta-analysis of empirical studies and other data sourcing from research and analysis of conducted by various authors, brought an attempt to answer the question somewhat provocatively posed by the researcher of the problem of situational character transformations on the ground of social psychology - Philip Zimbardo, which reads, „Why do good people do evil”? In this context, the task was undertaken to implement certain research problems falling within the field of Zimbardo’s „psychology of evil” into the area of interdisciplinary-oriented research on military ethics. The analyses carried out served as a basis for the formulation of general conclusions and recommendations in the field of ethical training of representatives of the uniformed services.
