      What does C. Wright Mills say about sociological imagination?

      According to C.Wright Mills , Sociological imagination is the awareness of the relationship between an individual and the wider society. Being able to view ones society as an outsider. It helps us understand how our decisions affect our society as a whole.

      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?

      Sociologists are interested in the experience of individuals and how those experiences are shaped by interactions within social groups. Both from the micro level (Accepted rules of a conversation) to the macro level (The use of language and how it changes over time).

      What is the difference between Sociological Imagination and Sociological Perspective?

      Sociological Imagination is understanding the relationship one has in there society and how it affects them. While Sociological Perspective is understanding WHY one does what it does in said society. For example one might drink Tea because its healthy for you in the way vitamins are (sociological perspective). While others drink it because in there culture its socially acceptable to drink it during social activities (sociological imagination).
