What explanation did Milgram offer as to why the "teachers" obeyed the commands of the experimenter to continue delivering successively higher shocks to the "learners?"

▸ The teachers knew that the experiment was fabricated, and that no one was receiving actual shocks; teachers "played along" to help the experimenter.

▸ The learners gave no indication of being distressed by their treatment; therefore, the teachers had no way of knowing the effects of the shocks they delivered.

▸ The teachers recognized their moral obligation to contribute to the advancement of science, and therefore participated in the experiment to the fullest.

▸ The experimenter was self-assured and accepted responsibility for the outcomes; therefore, participants felt less responsible for their actions.
