      1) What does C. Wright Mills say about sociological imagination?

        <li style=”text-align: left;”>Wright Mills states that sociological imagination is “the capacity to shift from one perspective to another.. the capacity to range from the most impersonal and remote transformations to the intimate features of the human self- and to see the relations between the two.” Sociological imagination is being able to comprehend the association or link between people and the surroundings that make up their lives.

      2) 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?

      • A group of people who reside in a defined area, share a culture, and who interact with one another is call ed a society. A sociologist defines a society based on patterns and social forces. They focus on trends and personal decisions people make.
