Write Discussion Essay Sociology(300words)

 

Question

 

C. Wright Mills' "The Sociological Imagination" states:

 

"The Sociological imagination enables us to grasp history and biography and the relationship between the two within society. This is its task and promise. It is by means of the sociological imagination that human beings now hope to grasp what is happening to themselves as minute points of intersection between biography and history within society."

 

Using Mills' definition, how would you apply sociological imagination to your own life? what is the point of intersection between your personal biography and a social/historical event?
