The Sociological Imagination

Background:C. Wright Mills states that a sociological imagination is the ability to “grasp the interplay between man and society biography and history of self and world” (Mills 1959). In other words Mills states that our lives are largely influenced by the time period location and the family we are born into. Malcolm Gladwell backs up this idea in his book Outliers. Watch this interview (Links to an external site.) where he describes how being born in the mid 1950s was particularly fortuitous for those interested in computer programming development. It also helped to be geographically near what were then called supercomputers. Back in the 1960s when Gates and Jobs were coming of age a supercomputer took up a whole room and was not something most would have had a chance to use. Because of their proximity to actual computers both Gates and Jobs had a leg up on others their age and had the chance to spend many hours learning to program. Question:Think about what opportunities your own biography and history have afforded you. How has when where and to whom you were born shaped your life today?
