Wright Mills says that sociological imagination is the vivid awareness of the relationship between experience and the wider society. </span><span style=”font-weight: 400;”>Sociological imagination</span><span style=”font-weight: 400;”> is the ability to see things socially and how they interact and influence each other according to Mills. The term culture is used to describe the interaction between a society. It’s about how interaction shapes each person. The sociologist would just be the one interpreting the data. Sociological imagination in essence is the ability to view an alternative solution or outcome to any situation, as compared to sociological perspective; how a whole society chooses to carry out certain interactions. So I choose to drink coffee black, but I would be able to analyze what would make someone put milk or sugar in theirs, which is Imagination. A whole society adding milk and sugar to their coffee is Perspective because that would dive into the history of the nation and their progression to their flavor needs.</span>
