Sociological Imagination

Sociological Imagination

 

Sociologist C. Wright Mills identified the importance of using one's Sociological Imagination – the ability to find the relationship between individual lives (personal facts) and larger social issues.  Use your Sociological Imagination to introduce yourself by using personal facts (things that have happened just to you) and then connecting them to social facts (things you have in common with other people).  (Information on the Sociological Imagination can be found both in the course content section for this unit as well as chapter 1 in your textbook.)

First, list some personal facts, then explain how to broaden the understanding of your personal facts into social facts.
