      What does C. Wright Mills say about sociological imagination?

      C. Wright Mills says, “Neither the life of an individual nor the history of a society can be understood without understanding both”. He is basically saying that in order to understand the history of a culture, you must first see the patterns of the individuals that make up that culture.

      How does a sociologist define society as a group of people who reside in a defined area, share a culture, and who interact with one another?

      Society is a group of people who for the most part all share the same beliefs and all have some sort of relationship or pattern depending on the culture, the society can vary. A sociologist will look at what kind of area you live in and see how that can change or form a person. for example if you live in a poorer area there may be a pattern of drug dealers and that can influence how that culture behaves and acts.

      What is the difference between Sociological Imagination and Sociological Perspective?

      Sociological imagination is figuring out what pattern or norms in a culture that forms the way the individuals behave and think, whereas, sociological perspective focuses more on the individual and tires to figure out their behavior due to their surrounding/environment.
