C Wright Mills introduces the sociological imagination as both a worldview and the pre-requisite of sociological inquiry. He states that the sociological imagination connects history to biography. What does he mean by this? Additionally, explain the relevance of the intersection of these two spheres to both your life and understanding society. That is, find an aspect of your life that demonstrates how forces larger than you have influenced your personal life; and, why it may be relevant for you to be cognizant of the course and consequences of the vortex of social forces that shapes or has shaped your personal life.
